    Description: Mendelssohn & Mendelssohn

    The Canterbury Orchestra conclude their season with a celebration of Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn. Featuring their leader, Floriane Peycelon as the soloist, Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto is at the centre of the programme: enigmatic and virtuosic in equal measure, the work forms an intriguing partner to the composer’s ‘Italian’ Symphony. Fanny Mendelssohn’s Overture in C major – a masterpiece in melody, harmony, and orchestration – opens the concert, while the premiere of a new arrangement of her Notturno in G minor – originally written for solo piano – completes the programme. Both child prodigies, both heroes of their time, this concert celebrates the genius of Mendelssohn and Mendelssohn.
