Mendelssohn’s “Scottish” Symphony No. 3 is inspired by a trip the 20-year-old composer took to Scotland, where he visited the ruins of an old castle: “Everything round is broken and mouldering and the bright sky shines in,” the composer wrote. “I believe I have found today…the beginning of my Scottish Symphony.”
It would take Mendelssohn a decade to complete the work. The music is vivid and expressive, but without making any specific references to Scottish scenery or lore.
GRAMMY-winning violinist Augustin Hadelich is one of the great violinists of his generation. He’ll be featured on Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1, a dramatic, technically demanding work.
Shostakovich wrote the concerto in 1948, but kept it locked in a drawer for several years, concerned that the work wouldn’t be approved by Soviet authorities.
