Festival Details - "Philharmonia Orchestra - Gatti: Mendelssohn & Brahms"...

Part of Classical Season

Daniele Gatti conducts Mendelssohn’s sunny Italian Symphony and Brahms’ inspired Second Symphony.

The result of a happy ten-month holiday, Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony is a tribute to the `supreme delight in life’ the composer found in Italy.

Instantly joyous, especially at the leaping `Saltarello’ dance of the finale, Mendelssohn even briefly referred to his symphony as `blue sky in A major’.

Equally inspired, Brahms’ sunny Second Symphony came hot on the heels of his eagerly awaited First. `The melodies flow so freely that one must be careful not to trample on them’, Brahms wrote as he composed from the idyllic surroundings of the Austrian lakeside village of Pörtschach.

`Gatti . . . visually conveys such a sense of physical force that his restrained gestures communicate a sense of coiled power waiting to strike.’ (Washington Post)
