MENDELSSOHN  

Symphony No.4 ‘Italian’ (c.30 mins) 

François Leleux, oboe/director 


There’s a chill in the air and the nights are drawing in, but here’s a concert from superstar oboist François Leleux that simply bursts with sunshine.

Mendelssohn’s depiction of Shakespearian shenanigans glows in the light of a balmy summer evening, while his sun-dappled ‘Italian’ Symphony is as ripe and zesty as a freshly-plucked lemon. Louise Farrenc’s first Overture bounds along with energy and invention; and Leleux plays for us, too, in his own arrangements of arias from two of Mozart’s most celebrated operas.  An evening of feel-good favourites so dazzling that you might need a pair of sunglasses.


This concert will go on general sale from Thursday 2 September.
