Mendelssohn’s Italy Presented by New World Symphony

Take a deep dive alongside Michael Tilson Thomas into the delightful music of German and Austrian masters. Discovering Italy’s beauty was a rite of passage for many Romantics and Felix Mendelssohn was no exception. Inspired by everything from Roman ruins to sparkling coastal waters, his Fourth Symphony forms a series of sunny impressions. Perhaps the lasting legacy of the original play, Franz Schubert’s drama-filled Overture is quintessentially lyrical, from its theatrical start to its race-to-the-finish finale.
