EDWARD ELGAR Sea Pictures 
NIKOLAI RIMSKY-KORSAKOV Scheherazade 

Emotions are laid bare. In Jake Heggie’s The Work at Hand, mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke and SLSO cellist Elizabeth Chung face the impossibility of saying goodbye. In Edward Elgar’s Sea Pictures, Cooke’s luminous voice uncovers love, faith, dreams, and fears. And Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade lends rich colors to a princess who tells stories to stay alive.

In memory of St. Louis Post-Dispatch classical music critic Sarah Bryan Miller.
