BACH Violin Concerto in E (19’)

BACH (arr WEBERN) Ricercare from A Musical Offering (08’) 

MENDELSSOHN Symphony No 5 in D ‘Reformation’ (27’)



Karina Canellakis pairs Mendelssohn with his idol, the man whose music he described as "The greatest music in the world”: JS Bach. We hear contrasting sides of Bach: the brilliant and courtly concerto composer in his 30s, then the visionary, astounding master in his last years. Mendelssohn’s exhilarating and celebratory symphony makes a fine climax to the evening. Written to mark the 300th anniversary of a key date in The Reformation, nonetheless it is the inspiration of Bach that you hear throughout. 

Kindly supported by SCO AMERICA.
