The glorious Italian symphony has been called ‘Blue sky in A major.’ One of the most luminous of orchestral favourites, Mendelssohn's buoyantly tuneful work contrasts with Elgar's valedictory concerto, which mourns the loss of an era in music both spectral and gravely beautiful. With this program we welcome to Melbourne multi-award winning Argentinean cellist Sol Gabetta, praised by the Washington Times as “a fabulous young cellist [who] envelops her instrument like a willowy reincarnation of Jacqueline du Pre.” The MSO is proud to open this program with the first performance of a new work by Melbourne-based composer Julian Yu.
