Mendelssohn A Midsummer Night’s Dream: Overture
Strauss Oboe Concerto
Mendelssohn Symphony No.4 Italian
Nicholas Carter conductor
Diana Doherty oboe
A luminous orchestral favourite, the glorious Italian symphony has been called ‘Blue sky in A major.’ While Mendelssohn created this in his adulthood, he composed his shimmering overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream when he was just 16 – a miracle of musical genius. And don’t miss the sublime Diana Doherty as soloist in Richard Strauss’ autumnal oboe concerto.
