Peregrine Orchestra and Daniel Collins present ENIGMA:

A programme that explores the connections between Edward Elgar’s famous variations, which includes the lyrical ‘Nimrod’ alongside portraits of the composer’s friends, with music by Mendelssohn and Bach. Orchestra and conductor are joined by Peregrine Voices and mezzo-soprano soloist Eleanor Kemp for selections from Bach alongside Mendelssohn’s ‘Reformation’ symphony, inspired by the Lutheran hymn ‘Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott’ – the tune that may lie behind Elgar’s vivid music.

Peregrine Orchestra is a new, vibrant amateur orchestra based in North London, founded in the Summer of 2021 by Daniel Collins, a member of the internationally acclaimed vocal ensemble The Sixteen. The orchestra consists of some of the finest amateur players in London and beyond, and its ethos is centred around promoting young musicians: The leader for each concert is always an emerging artist, often someone who studies at one of London’s fine music colleges, students are included within the ranks where possible, and soloists who work with the orchestra are always young professionals. In each of our concerts, we aim to bring the highest possible standard of music to the community, taking the utmost care to explore nuances within our programmes whilst performing with energy and passion.
