Mozart and Mendelssohn

Mozart and Mendelssohn

A concerto by Mozart and Mendelssohn’s sunny Italian Symphony in a concert brimming with optimism and high spirits!

Two of music’s most famous prodigies – Mozart and Mendelssohn – and the SSO’s youngest principal player, Todd Gibson-Cornish, are the stars in this sublime program. Mozart’s lively Bassoon Concerto exploits every side of the bassoon’s personality: virtuosity, humour and mellow eloquence. Mendelssohn’s popular Italian Symphony was literally a musical postcard from his Grand Tour in the 1830s. It’s vibrant music, brimming with charm – “blue sky in A major”. Against all this youthful exuberance stands the introduction to Strauss’s opera Capriccio: enchanting, atmospheric chamber music overheard by the characters on stage.
