Festival: BBC Proms

The dynamic Freiburg Baroque Orchestra brings authentic period-instrument colour to three of Mendelssohn’s best-loved orchestral works in a Proms matinee directed by rising young conductor Pablo Heras-Casado. Violinist Isabelle Faust makes her second appearance this season, as soloist in Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto – the composer’s last completed orchestral work, and perhaps the loveliest of all the Romantic violin concertos. The 500th anniversary of the Reformation continues to be marked with Mendelssohn’s Fifth Symphony, whose  final movement quotes movingly from Luther’s chorale ‘Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott’, while the concert opens with the composer’s glorious overture The Hebrides, inspired by a visit to Fingal’s Cave on the Scottish Isle of Staffa. 

Tickets £9.50 - £50.
