Programme

MENDELSSOHNThe Hebrides (Fingal’s Cave)Listen
ELGARSea PicturesListen
MENDELSSOHNSymphony No.3 ScottishListen

 

“The [Mendelssohn’s Hebrides] overture and [Scottish] symphony, both with plenty of outdoorsy energies, were marvels of visceral urgency, dramatic timing and elaborately nuanced dynamics.”
The Dallas Morning News


“Van Zweden delivered these two musical postcards with high romantic élan.”
FrontRow


The young Mendelssohn’s travels in Scotland inspired him to write two masterpieces. The Hebrides depicts the wonders of a remote sea cave. Inspired, Mendelssohn scribbled its opening phrase on a postcard to his sister, and composed the rest quickly afterwards. The Scottish Symphony brims with the energy of folk dance, song and highland colour. As a companion work, Jaap introduces mezzo-soprano Christianne Stotijn to sing Elgar’s Sea Pictures – a song cycle pulsating with the many moods of the sea – sun-kissed, brooding, and stormy music, with a brilliant singer to guide us across it.
