    Description: Celebration of Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn.

    Featuring their leader, Floriane Peycelon and Cora Hewitt, winner of the Canterbury Festival 2023 Young Musician’s Bursary Competition as soloists. 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 which brings the programme to a close. The concert includes arrangements of Fanny Mendelssohn’s Notturno in G minor and Pastorello in A major, with Vivaldi’s Recorder Concerto ‘La Notte’ completing the programme.

    Both child prodigies, both heroes of their time, this concert celebrates the genius of Mendelssohn and Mendelssohn.
