- Conductor - Douglas Boyd
- Piano - David Fray

- Mendelssohn The Hebrides Overture
- Schumann Piano Concerto
- Beethoven Symphony No.4

From the very first bar, Mendelssohn puts us out on the rolling, grey-green sea. Sunlight glints and sinks into the depths: gulls wheel overhead: lonely, rocky islands stand on the horizon.

Schumann’s Piano Concerto has always been phenomenally popular, and no wonder; as did its composer, the piece swings between tempestuous emotion and a wistful poetry.

Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony begins in a solemn mood. Or so it seems, until the moment when it bursts into some of the most vigorously irrepressible music he ever wrote. A blissful second movement, a helter-skelter finale: it’s Beethoven at his most buoyant.
