Jérémie Rhorer conductor

Francesco Piemontesi piano

Schumann and Mendelssohn were in awe of each other, and although both were brilliant musical fantasists, tonight’s concert provides the perfect opportunity to contrast the dream-like, time-suspending romance of Schumann’s Concerto with Mendelssohn’s neo-classical sparkle and lithe textures – what Schumann referred to as ‘Mozart’s second coming’.
