Whenever Felix Mendelssohn was enthusiastic about something, he would turn it into music. A trip to Italy prompted the rollicking Italian Symphony. His friend’s violin playing inspired the gorgeous Violin Concerto. A lifelong passion for Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream resulted in a whole suite of fairy-tale incidental music, including the famous Wedding March. This entire concert is a testament to Mendelssohn’s irrepressible wonder and excitement.
Who will lift the lid on all this joyful, sparkling music? Pinchas Zukerman knows this music intimately – he began his illustrious recording career playing Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto, under the baton of Leonard Bernstein. Now Zukerman steps onto the conductor’s podium, and outstanding young Japanese violinist Fumiaki Miura takes the solo role in what will be a night to remember.
