Conductor Martyn Brabbins celebrated his 60th birthday in fine fashion: with a new commission for 14 composers to create their own set of orchestral variations on an anonymous theme, mirroring the shape of Elgar’s Enigma Variations. Programme notes from the composers illustrated a genuine fondness for the great conductor, and their perceptions of him – energy, warmth, generosity, humour and virtuosity – shone through in an impressively unified work.
