The Hallé - Mendelssohn’s ‘Scottish’ Symphony on Thursday 17th May 2018
Schubert - Symphony No.8, 'Unfinished'
Mozart - Piano Concerto No.18, K456
Mendelssohn - Symphony No.3, 'Scottish'
Sir Mark Elder
Hong Xu, piano
Sir Mark conducts Schubert’s ‘Unfinished’ Symphony and whilst it might be unfinished, its two movements form one of the most beautiful and satisfying musical experiences of them all. Hong Xu is not just a pianist of dazzling technique but a musician of great subtlety and insight. He performs Mozart’s B flat major Piano Concerto, written for the blind pianist and composer Maria Theresia von Paradis. Its two lively outer movements frame exquisite variations on a theme. Mendelssohn’s symphonic homage to Scotland evokes the atmosphere of Edinburgh’s Holyrood Palace, misty glens, magnificent mountains and the country’s distinctive folk music.
