Perhaps it's appropriate that the Los Angeles Philharmonic plays in a concert hall named for this country's most famous animator. In today's show, the L.A. Phil plays Edward Elgar's set of lovingly-drawn musical portraits of his friends and family, the Enigma Variations. We'll hear a concert performance from the orchestra's home, Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.
