The program

Ludwig van Beethoven
Violin Concerto
Felix Mendelssohn
Symphony No.4 « Italian »



Some encounters are unforgettable. Beethoven’s only violin concerto is the work of a man in love: it is a love poem in music, dedicated to his secret engagement with Teréz Brunszvik embodied in the perfect union between orchestra and soloist. Felix Mendelssohn’s Symphony n° 4 “The Italian” was inspired by the composer’s journey to Rome in the spring of 1830. So enchanted was he by the Italian landscapes, that he set out to depict them in music. A concert with two works fired by a like joy. A journey of love or love of travel… why not have both?
