Mendelssohn: Hebrids, ouverture Chopin: Piano Concerto No 1 Dvorak: Symphony No 8
Conductor: Christian Vasquez Soloist: Ingolf Wunder, piano
Tonight we will hear the music of two of history's foremost pianists together with a symphony, placed in the middle of the Romantic era.
Frederic Chopin was a virtuoso pianist whose music inspired the "bel-canto" voice parts of the Italian opera composers. Most of his piano pieces are small-scale, yet, by the age of 20, he had already completed two major piano concertos.
Felix Mendelssohn was a child prodigy who excelled in every field of music – as a composer, conductor and performer. He is represented this evening by his musical travelogue of Scotland – the Hebrides Overture (Fingal's Cave).
Anton Dvorak's 8th Symphony was composed at the height of his career, and displays a much brighter mood than that of his earlier symphonies.
