An NCPA Presentation

Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 4 (“Italian”)

In this series of talks on Western classical music, Dr. Cavas Bilimoria takes listeners through musical concepts, the lives of composers and their famous works, sprinkled with examples of recorded music. This month, his first talk will discuss Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 4, also known as the Italian. The composer captures in musical form, the sights, smells and emotions inspired by his holiday in Italy. Published in 1851—four years after Mendelssohn’s death—it is among the most brilliant music he composed and has remained one of the best-loved symphonies in Western classical music.
