Francesco Piemontesi piano

Dukas Overture, Polyeucte

Schumann Piano Concerto


Mendelssohn Symphony No. 4, Italian

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’.
