Italian Sunshine

Rossini Italian Girl in Algiers (Overture)
Mozart Piano Concerto no21 in C major, K.467
Mendelssohn Symphony no4 in A major, Op.90 ‘Italian’

Bernard D’Ascoli piano
Adrian Partington conductor

Best known for his exquisite and deeply-felt performances of the Romantic repertoire, the well-loved French pianist Bernard d’Ascoli will be performing the intensely lyrical Mozart Piano Concerto no21, which moves from cheekiness to anguish to catharsis with a whole lot more along the way!

We will also hear colours and atmospheres of Italy, with the Overture of L’italiana in Algeri, Rossini’s first real smash in 1813 which has maintained its place in the repertory; and the “jolliest piece” Mendelssohn ever wrote, as described by Mendelssohn himself in a letter to his sister Fanny.
