The Columbus Symphony’s exploration of serenades for strings continues with an early gem by British composer Edward Elgar and Haydn’s festive Sinfonia Concertante for violin, cello, oboe, and bassoon. Haydn was also the inspiration for Brahms’ Variations, one of the greatest orchestral works of the 19th century.


Elgar: Serenade for Strings
Haydn: Sinfonia Concertante
Brahms: Variations on a Theme by Joseph Haydn
