Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3 was initially inspired during his first visit to Britain in 1829. Following a walking tour of Scotland, including a visit to the ruins of Holyrood Chapel at Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, he found his initial source of inspiration for his Scottish Symphony. On March 7th, under the conductor Alexander Liebreich, of the Munich Chamber Orchestra, Mendelssohn’s Scottish Symphony will be recreated at Palau de la Música. Alongside the colours and shapes of Mendelssohn’s Scottish Symphony, the programme will include Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2 performed by Alexei Volodin, a Russian pianist who has been praised as one of the most promising musicians of his generation. Hosted at the Palau de la Música, take the opportunity to watch a unique performance inside the intricately detailed concert hall, recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage since 1997.
