Bruch Violin Concerto

Felix Mendelssohn was a young man when he travelled through misty, romantic Scotland. He sailed across crashing seas and ventured into mysterious caves – formative experiences that inspired his concert overture, The Hebrides. Meanwhile, his contemporary Robert Schumann was putting his heart and soul into composing a piano concerto, finally producing one of the great concertos of the age with his robust and brilliant Piano Concerto in A minor. Hear it performed by the formidable Alexander Gavrylyuk.

The remainder of the concert is devoted to a pair of earlier contemporaries and friends, Haydn and Mozart. Hear how each composer embraced fashionable ‘Turkish’ idioms, with Mozart’s jingle-jangle Overture to The Abduction to the Seraglio – by far Mozart’s most popular opera during his lifetime – and Haydn’s rousing Symphony No 100, ‘Military’.
