The New Zealand Herald Premier Series: Magnificent Mendelssohn

Conductor Giordano Bellincampi

Violin Geneva Lewis

Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra

Gade Echoes of Ossian

Mendelssohn Violin Concerto

Bruckner Symphony No.4 ‘Romantic’

 

The poems attributed to the Gaelic warrior-bard Ossian were staples of the early Romantic movement. One of many in their thrall was Giordano Bellincampi’s compatriot, Niels Gade, who wrote an overture which made its 23-year-old composer famous overnight.

Gade’s admirers included Mendelssohn, whose much-loved concerto will be the APO début of another brilliant young musician, New Zealand-born violinist Geneva Lewis.

None of Bruckner’s monumental symphonies has a specific programme, but the Fourth is the only one to which he gave a title. A fitting one, too. It is music that evokes German forests, chivalrous deeds and grand heroism.
