Schœnberg Transfigured Night op. 4
Haydn Symphony No. 80 Hob. I:80
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto No. 2 op. 64

Hailed by his peers as one of the finest performers of his generation, German violinist Christian Tetzlaff is equally at home playing and conducting Mozart and Mendelssohn. The slow movement of the Mozart concerto heralds the first flush of Romanticism with dazzling elegance. The feverish, lyrical yet dreamy Mendelssohn concerto draws to a close with echoes of the Midsummer Night’s Dream. Schoenberg’s Transfigured Night, which marks the twilight of Viennese Romanticism, offers the string section all the power of opera without the lyrics. Music has developed hugely over the course of a century since the classical symphonies whose number includes this little played but intriguing Symphony No. 80 by Haydn!
