Barber?Eassay for Orchestra No. 2
Mendelssohn?Symphony No. 4 in A Major, “Italian”
North meets South: and on a January afternoon in Glasgow, who couldn?t do with a bit of sunshine? Mendelssohn?s?Italian?Symphony begins with a little explosion of sunlight and joy ? music that sings, dances and simply lies back and soaks up the rays. Conductor Patrycja Pieczara flies us south this lunchtime. It?ll make a colourful contrast to Samuel Barber?s moody mini-masterpiece and adopted Glaswegian Oliver Searle?s entertaining musical stroll down our very own Sauchiehall Street!
