Mendelssohn String Symphony No. 7
Guest conductor Nicholas McGegan returns to Cleveland to lead a program filled with musical invention and seasonal abundance — surveying a range of works from the late 17th to early 19th centuries. Two works offer reflections on the Christmas season, while Bach’s inventive Third Brandenburg Concerto showcases this master’s ingenuity with string orchestra. The program concludes with a youthful and spirited symphony written by Mendelssohn as a teenager.
In addition to the concert performances, each episode of In Focus includes behind-the-scenes interviews and features about the music and musicmaking.
