Breathless excitement bursts forth as we gallop along, the Italian landscape a warm blur. Mendelssohn's sun-kissed symphony provides a musical postcard from a young composer revelling in the ‘supreme joy of life’, inspired on his adventure by everything from Roman ruins to sparkling coastal waters.
Sitting alongside our players, the musicians of the world-renowned Academy of St Martin in the Fields lead the way in this unconducted performance. They bring with them Variations on a Theme of Benjamin Britten, written for the Academy and drawing on the ensemble's special democracy in which every musician is considered a soloist.
