Footprints | Mendelssohn in the footsteps of Mozart
It is with sadness that we announce that this concert has been cancelled.
Mendelssohn and Mozart have more in common than you would say at first sight. Their music breathes the same purity, naturalness and spontaneity.
Mendelssohn, who was named by Schumann as "the Mozart of the 19th century", completed - as Mozart did - some of his works entirely in his head before putting them down on paper. They both displayed an exceptional musical talent at a very young age. The German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832), who got to know both composers as young children, immediately compared Mendelssohn with the prodigy Mozart. Through this programme we follow Mendelssohn in the footsteps of his 53-years-older musical twin brother.
Soloist will be selected through internal audition
