ERNTEDANK - Mendelssohn's travels
Piano concerto in g minor op.25
Symphony No. 4 "Italian
Orchestra of the Tyrolean Festival Erl
Conductor: Dmitry Liss
Piano: Martin Stadtfeld
Felix Mendelssohn found the inspiration for his overture "The Hebrides" on his journey to England and Scotland: the spectacular nature around the legendary sea cave "Fingal's Cave" impressed him deeply. Shortly thereafter, he traveled to the south, where he conceived his "Italian Symphony," which seems like the counterpart to his "Scottish Symphony," primarily because of its romantic character. Mendelssohn also developed his Piano Concerto in G minor in Rome. It will be conducted by Dmitry Liss, chief conductor of the Ural Philharmonic Orchestra and the Philharmonie Zuidnederland. The soloist is the multi-award-winning pianist Martin Stadtfeld.
