Principal Conductor Bernard Labadie brings his distinctive artistic vision to two works by Felix Mendelssohn inspired by the composer’s 1829 journey to Scotland: The Hebrides Overture and Symphony No. 3 in A Minor, Op. 56 “Scottish.” Mendelssohn, who is credited with reviving the music of J.S. Bach in the 19th century, was devoted to Bach’s keyboard works, and is said to have performed them on the modern pianoforte. This program honors Mendelssohn’s passion for Bach with two of his keyboard concertos performed on the piano by emerging Italian pianist Beatrice Rana, the 2017 Gramophone Classical Music Awards Young Artist of the Year.
