Event Description

Fanny Mendelssohn wrote the Overture in C when she was 25 years old, yet it remained unpublished until it was resurrected over 150 years later and has since become increasingly popular. Hummel’s virtuosic “Potpourri,” another work that languished in obscurity until recently, is the perfect vehicle to showcase the talents of the SPCO’s newest Artistic Partner, Tabea Zimmermann. Rounding out the program is music from Fanny’s younger brother, Felix. In 1829 Felix Mendelssohn visited the abandoned Holyrood Abbey in Edinburgh and wrote “Everything around is broken and moldering, and bright sky shines in. I believe I found today in that old chapel the beginning of my Scottish Symphony.” The ruins remain virtually unchanged to this day.
