Tugan Sokhiev conductor

Viktoria Mullova violin

Two of the most enchanting pieces of the Romantic era, Mendelssohn’s life-enhancing concerto creates the impression of having been conceived in one miraculous sweep (in fact it took him six years, on and off), while Mahler’s Fourth possesses a magical, Mendelssohnian innocence, culminating in one of the most angelically beautiful song-settings ever composed.

Tugan Sokhiev’s appearance is supported by The Meyer Foundation.

This concert is supported by Friends of the Philharmonia Orchestra
