Britten & Elgar

Featuring Elina Vähälä
Richardson Auditorium
Get Tickets $30-112; Youth 5-17 half-price

Exploding gestures and fleeting melodies are found in contemporary composer Jessie Montgomery's Starburst, and Elina Vähälä makes her PSO debut performing Benjamin Britten's inventive Violin Concerto. Elgar's beloved Enigma Variations completes the program.

"Vähälä's viscerally affecting approach united musical depth and technical finesse. Britten's solo lines use percussive attacks as much as drawn-out phrases, and hers were piercing.... spellbinding" – The Oregonian
