Scottish Chamber Orchestra – Mendelssohn Violin Concerto

Viviane Hagner Director / Violin

Few composers convey youthful energy like Schubert and Mendelssohn, and in this concert we hear some of their sunniest works.

The great 19th century violinist Joseph Joachim called Mendelssohn’s violin concerto the heart’s jewel of German violin concertos. Brought to life by violinist/director Vivian Hagner, it’s tender, lyrical and full of good tunes.

The programme is bookended by Schubert: his delightful Overture in the Italian Style sets the scene, and his Symphony No 5, by turns sprightly and intimate, is summer distilled into music.
