Mendelssohn: Concerto in D minor

The Scottish Ensemble under Jonathan Morton (violin) performs at Peth Concert Hall. Mendelssohn: Concerto in D minor (Alasdair Beatson: piano).

Live from Perth Concert Hall

The Scottish Ensemble, Scotland's premier virtuoso string ensemble join forces with Perth-born pianist Alasdair Beatson at the Perth Concert Hall to perform a contrasting programme of Mendelssohn and Stravinsky. Written when Mendelssohn was only 14 years old, his concerto for violin, piano and strings is a joyful counterpoint to the neo-classical elegance and energy of Stravinsky.
