D major In the Italian Style

MENDELSSOHN

Symphony No. 4, Italian

 

At the age of 21, Mendelssohn undertook his second ‘grand

tour’ of Europe where inspiration struck for an Italian

symphony. Mendelssohn was drawn to, as he put it, the

vivacity and “supreme delight in life” he found in Italy.

The result, is a symphony that’s instantly joyous,

especially at the leaping ‘Saltarello’ dance of the finale.

Alongside, the quiet beauty of Schumann’s Piano Concerto,

the première of which was given by Schumann’s wife, Clara,

on New Year’s Day, 1846.

 

This concert is sponsored by the Friends

of the Philharmonia.
