Elgar Enigma Variations
Bruckner Symphony No. 3


Michael Lankester, guest conductor,
HSO music director from 1985-2000

Michael Lankester makes a triumphant return to the Hartford Symphony Orchestra to lead two pieces of expressive personality.  Lankester’s fellow Englishman Edward Elgar dedicated his Enigma Variations to “my friends pictured within” – and made each variation an affectionate portrayal.  This is followed by Bruckner’s grand, dramatic, and brassy Third Symphony.
