This is Italy...

Cyprus : This is Italy...

Mendelssohn’s “Italian” symphony, composed during his tour of Italy, not only reflects the colours and temperament of the country and its people, but also incorporates the characteristic dance rhythms of the saltarello and tarantella. This splendid symphony will be preceded by the majestic Overture to Tancredi by Rossini and Beethoven’s masterful Violin concerto, whose revival in 1844 was conducted by Mendelssohn himself and interpreted by the then 12-year-old violinist Joseph Joachim.

Pre – concert talk with short presentation of the works, by clarinetist and musicologist Angelos Angelides.
