This week we take a trip to Italy, exploring Mendelssohn's most popular symphony. We discuss Mendelssohn's love of nature, and the remarkable independence and variety that Mendelssohn achieves within a tightly knit German Romantic era symphony. This symphony is like flipping through a photo album of Mendelssohn's Grand Tour of Italy, so we explore how he was able to create such a distinct picture in each movement, while also discussing the extensive revisions that Mendelssohn attempted on the symphony.
