Following Mendelssohn’s enchanting Overture, written during his teens, the audience will be treated to two great works from late in their composers’ lives.
The “Scottish” Symphony, Mendelssohn’s last, is filled with echoes of Scotland’s stormy, embattled history, punctuated by both a Scottish reel and perhaps the most beautiful Adagio he ever wrote.
Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto, one of his final works, is a touchstone of the clarinet repertory. With its rich, mellow voice, the solo clarinet seems to engage the orchestra in a loving conversation between friends.
