Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64
Schubert Symphony No. 9 in C major, D. 944, ‘The Great’

Janine Jansen violin
Marios Papadopoulos conductor

For months, Franz Schubert was referring in letters to the ‘Great’ symphony that was taking shape inside his head. The C major symphony that eventually materialised was indeed great, prompting the score’s great champion Robert Schumann to claim that it transports listeners into ‘a whole new world’. This musical marriage of exuberance and order, momentum and mystery, had its first performance in 1828 under the leadership of Felix Mendelssohn, whose airborne Violin Concerto is played here by one of its most distinguished exponents: Janine Jansen.
