Mendelssohn Scottish and Beethoven Eight - Midsummer Dreams - Newcastle

With over 40 musicians on stage, this symphonic program opens in the magical world of A Midsummer Night’s Dream with Mendelssohn’s enchanting overture, full of scampering fairy feet and sparkling strings. It ends in the brooding landscapes of Scotland with Mendelssohn’s ‘Scottish’ Symphony, inspired by his travels there as a young man – a hugely evocative and dramatic work. In between, we take a journey of a different kind, plumbing the depths of the symphony in Beethoven’s Eighth. This is a remarkable work that confounds expectations and surprises at every turn, yet is full of toe-tapping melodies.

Join this inspiring program as they celebrate their 10th anniversary.
