Mendelssohn's VOYAGES Will Be Performed By The Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra This Weekend

The concert will start with Herbrides Overture, continues with Fair Melusine Overture, and closes with Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 4.

Mendelssohn's VOYAGES Will Be Performed By The Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra This Weekend

The Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) presents gems composed by the renowned composer Felix Mendelssohn on Saturday, 8 May 2021 at 3.00 pm at Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS (DFP). The concert will be led by the MPO's Resident Conductor, Gerard Salonga.

Themed Mendelssohn's Voyages, the MPO has chosen some of Mendelssohn's best-known composition that was inspired during his travel on a long Grand Tour of Europe in 1829. The concert will start with Herbrides Overture, a work that perfectly captured the air of hushed mystery, dark mists and the restless sea, inspired during his voyages to Herbrides - a place of over one hundred rugged, picturesque islands.

Next, the MPO will perform Fair Melusine Overture, influenced by the old romantic legend of the beautiful Melusina who was condemned by her mother to become a mermaid every Saturday. Mendelssohn wrote the music as part of a symphonic concert piece in 1834.

The concert will close with Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 4, also known as the Italian Symphony. The symphony was written based on his experience travelling to Italy as part of his Grand Tour of Europe. It is one of the most perfectly realised pieces ever written that capture Italy's cheerful vitality and the composer's cheerful enthusiasm for the land. The symphony was first performed in London by the Philharmonic Society of London in 1833.
