Ever wanted to write music to describe your friends?  Well, the English composer Edward Elgar did just that with his Enigma Variations, one of the most beloved and popular pieces of the Western Classical Repertoire.  Take a deep dive with conductor and host Joshua Weilerstein as we explore all of Elgar's friendships, the brilliant way he describes them, and the famous "Enigma" theme.  By the end of the show, we'll all be friends with Elgar and his merry band.  Thanks for listening!
