Mendelssohn wrote that the melody that opens his Violin Concerto ‘sticks in my head’ and ‘will not leave me in peace’; this lyrical masterpiece is here performed by the German virtuoso Arabella Steinbacher. While composing his idyllic Second Symphony, Brahms told a friend that ‘melodies flow so freely that one must be careful not to tread on them’.
