Mendelssohn Italian Symphony
Beethoven Violin Concerto

Marin Alsop Conductor
Nicola Benedetti Violin

Nicola Benedetti’s first appearance with us.

A musician always confounding expectations, violinist Nicola Benedetti performs with us for the first time in this concert.

She’s joined by conductor Marin Alsop for a programme of Beethoven and Mendelssohn, performed with pure unvarnished musicality.

Mendelssohn’s buoyant, sparkling Italian Symphony was sketched out by the composer during an exhilarating trip to Italy.

Written in the same year as the Fourth Symphony, Beethoven’s only Violin Concerto was one of the first pieces written for the instrument on a large scale.

Enjoy this exploration of the variety of these two masters music with two artists of international distinction.
