Mendelssohn, Ruzicka, Adams



Felix Mendelssohn

This weekend (January 26 and 27), Music Director David Robertson leads the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra (and special guest violinist Julian Rachlin) in Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E minor, Adams’s Harmonielehre, and Ruzicka’s Elegie: Remembrance for Orchestra (U.S. premiere).

The St. Louis Symphony performs Mendelssohn’s “The Fair Melusina” overture, Brahms’s Double Concerto, and Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3 (“Scottish”) on February 7, 8, and 9. I wrote about the program here:
