Savannah Philharmonic: Mendelssohn Violin Concerto
MENDELSSOHN Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64
PROKOFIEV Symphony No. 5 in B-flat major, Op. 100
We explore three flavors of celebration in this memorable concert, beginning with Anna Clyne’s ceremonial overture written for the BBC Proms. Mendelssohn’s violin concerto warmly celebrates great friendship (and virtuosity), and we conclude with Prokofiev’s unbridled homage to the human spirit.
