Mendelssohn's Italian Symphony

Music Director: Paul Wright
Performed by: WAAPA Symphony Orchestra with Paul Wright (violin)

"This is Italy! And now has begun what I have always thought to be the supreme joy in life. And I am loving it."

The life and colour of Italy enchanted the young Felix Mendelssohn during his Grand Tour of Europe from 1829-1831. In Rome, he set to work on what would become the sun-filled and overflowingly joyful ‘Italian' Symphony. The WAAPA Symphony Orchestra celebrates the music of Mendelssohn alongside Mozart’s exquisite Violin Concerto No 5, performed by Paul Wright, WAAPA’s extraordinary Head of Strings. It’s some of the most dynamic and beautiful music of all time.
