Mendelssohn Weekend - Mary King

As part of Radio 3's Mendelssohn Weekend, Mary King presents a programme exploring the composer's wider sound-world. What would he have listened to? Who were his contemporary and historical heroes?

With music ranging from an excerpt from Mozart's Jupiter Symphony to Attwood's anthem Come Holy Ghost and Weber's Konzertstuck in F minor, Op 79, plus works by Schumann and Beethoven. With pieces by Mendelssohn himself, including his Three Studies, the String Symphony No 2 in D and the Caprice No 2 in E, as well as a specially-commissioned new Song Without Words.
