Programme Note

A wonderful opportunity to compare the relatively youthful and mature works of two of the most celebrated – but sadly, shortest-lived – musical prodigies. Before the interval, the thirty-year-old Mozart’s overture to the first of his great trio of operatic collaborations with Lorenzo Da Ponte followed by Mendelssohn’s glorious last major work and probably his most famous, here performed by American violinist Tai Murray who made her concert debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra when she was only nine! After, one of the eight Sinfonias for Strings composed when Felix was just twelve (just one year away from his first violin concerto) and a symphony from precocious teenager Wolfgang – its first movement probably best known for launching Miloš Forman’s hit movie Amadeus.
