The ECSO season finale features many works of royal occasion, and begins with Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Coronation March. Performed at every British coronation since 1727, George Frideric Handel’s Zadok the Priest from Coronation Anthem follows. Guest Steinway artist Eva Virsik is featured in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 19, which Mozart himself played at Leopold II of Austria’s coronation. Closing the concert in grand style is Edward Elgar’s Coronation Ode, which contains a lyrical version of the graduation staple Pomp and Circumstance. The ECS Chorus unites with soloists Sarah Yanovitch, Caroline O’Dwyer, Terrence B. Fay, and Brian Vu to perform Elgar’s sweeping masterpiece.
