Felix Mendelssohn — Symphony No. 5
Always a favorite with concertgoers, this symphony raises some fascinating questions about how Mendelssohn reconciled symphonic form with the romantic expression of religious feeling. Leon Botstein and the orchestra will give you all the background on this 1830 work with a lively talk and musical excerpts, then after intermission enjoy the entire piece and ask your questions in a Q&A.
