Performers and Cast

Isabelle Faust
violin
Antonello Manacorda

Mendelssohn’s overture is a vivid evocation of the sea and Scottish islands. Schumann’s Violin Concerto is full of the composer’s personal lyricism and invention. A strong influence on the later violin concerto of Brahms, its slow movement is particularly beautiful, and the piece as a whole is unjustly neglected. The second symphony is the most taut and dramatic of Schumann’s four, dating from around the time of the Piano Concerto. The lyrical slow movement leads to a jubilant finale.

“Her sound has passion, grit and electricity but also a disarming warmth and sweetness that can unveil the music’s hidden strains of lyricism…”
