Mendelssohn and Bartok from the 2019 Cheltenham Music Festival

Georgia Mann presents BBC New Generation Artists performing music by Mendelssohn and Bartok at the 2019 Cheltenham Music Festival.

Georgia Mann celebrates the twentieth anniversary of BBC Radio 3’s New Generation Artists scheme with a selection of performances by current members, from the Pittville Pump Room at the 2019 Cheltenham Music Festival. Aleksey Semenenko, Anastasia Kobekina and Elisabeth Brauss join forces to play Mendelssohn’s second Piano Trio, which was in part inspired by the music of Bach, and dedicated to the violinist and composer Louis Spohr. This is followed by one of Bartok’s most successful string quartets, the fourth, reflecting the composer’s fascination with mirror images and symmetry, and performed by Quatuor Arod.
