About This Event

Jérémie Rhorer’s energetic period-instrument ensemble makes its Proms debut along with fast-rising soprano Rosa Feola. The orchestra opens with Mozart’s vigorous Symphony No. 39, the first of the composer’s final trilogy.

Just like Mozart, Mendelssohn had an uncanny way of balancing head and heart in complex musical arguments, as heard in the thrusting brilliance of his Fourth Symphony, the ‘Italian’, tinged with poetry and romance.
