Event Details

Siblings Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn wrote hundreds of letters to one another and took special delight in sharing details and discoveries of their travels. This evening’s program features the music and letters of these Mendelssohn kindred spirits, and will bring to life the sights and sounds of early 19th century Britain and Italy through their eyes. Also on the program are folk song arrangements by Benjamin Britten and Mendelssohn’s powerful string quintet No. 2, Op.87 which reveals his genius beyond his more famous string octet.

Wine reception with Festival artists to follow.
