Get to the heart of Scotland with Aurora Orchestra in the symphony most closely associated with the country: Felix Mendelssohn’s Third.

Roaming across Scotland in the summer of 1829, the 20-year old composer Felix Mendelssohn was inspired to write what was to become his third symphony, with folk-inspired melodies paying homage to the history, people and beauty of Scotland. In this programme, Aurora Orchestra pairs the symphony with Maxwell Davies’ evocation of riotous wedding celebrations on his home island of Orkney (complete with its famous bagpipe solo) and Richard Strauss’ first horn concerto, a work in which the huge influence of Mendelssohn’s music can be clearly heard. Aurora Principal Horn Annemarie Federle – a 2020 BBC Young Musician of the Year finalist and one of the UK’s most in-demand young instrumentalists – makes her Kings Place solo debut.

This event will last approximately 2 hours, including an interval.
