This afternoon’s concert offers a stunning reminder as to how quickly the musical world changed between Beethoven’s galvanising psychological dramas (as encapsulated in his Egmont Overture and Emperor Piano Concerto) and Mendelssohn’s fleet-footed Romanticism, which looks simultaneously back to Mozart and forward to Wagner, subtly shaded by the rhythms of Scottish folk music.
