Yannick Nézet-Séguin by Jan Regan Photography, Jan Lisiecki by Holger Hage
Music from the tragically short lives of two great Romantic composers is featured. Mendelssohn’s concerto, composed when he was 22 years old, is filled with youthful high spirits, thills with its bravura solo part, and sings with beautiful melody. Schubert’s “Great” Symphony, his last orchestral work, is colossal and imbued with flowing lyricism, propulsive energy, and tremendous emotion. Regrettably, Schubert never lived to hear the work, which anticipates the epic symphonies of Bruckner, Mahler, and beyond.
