Overview

Mendelssohn once described his “Italian” Symphony as “blue sky in A major.” Experience his impressions of Italy – Mediterranean sunshine, religious solemnity, monumental art and architecture, and open countryside – in this delightful work. And prepare to be dazzled when young piano phenom Alexander Malofeev takes on one of the most challenging pieces ever written for the instrument and one of the most exciting to hear live – Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.
