About this concert

Mendelssohn found himself “extraordinarily affected” by a walking tour of Scotland in 1829; the country’s savage beauty haunted him for years, and inspired two of his best-loved works — the Hebrides Overture and Symphony No.3 in A minor.

King’s College alumnus Edward Gardner conducts virtuoso-violinist Alina Ibragimova and the AAM in a programme sure to linger long in the memory.
