MENDELSSOHN Symphony No 4 ‘Italian’
MENDELSSOHN Incidental music from A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Maxim Emelyanychev Conductor
Hilary Cronin Soprano
Jessica Cale Soprano
SCO Chorus (Sopranos and Altos)
Gregory Batsleer Chorus Director

Spend an evening with Mendelssohn the magician – creator of sunny, carefree worlds, and of spectacular Shakespearean evocations – in the company of Maxim Emelyanychev and the SCO.

The ‘Italian’ Symphony is Mendelssohn’s dazzling celebration of the blue skies and radiant sunshine he encountered in Italy – captured in music explicitly designed to transport you there.

Mendelssohn loved Shakespeare from his childhood, and he ushers you into a magical world of mismatched lovers and bickering fairies in his exquisite music for A Midsummer Night’s Dream – musical storytelling at its most vivid.
