Introduction

Paul Hindemith: Cupid and Psyche, ballet overture / William Walton: Viola Concerto/ Felix Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 3 "Scottish"

 

Felix Mendelssohn’s hiking tour of the British Isles led to one of the most popular symphonies of the Romantic era. A century later the friendship between composer and violist Paul Hindemith and William Walton spawned a classic viola concerto for future generations to enjoy. Violist Nils Mönkemeyer and conductor Tung-Chieh Chuang, winner of the 2015 Malko Competition, arrive in Finland from their intercontinental touring to present two of the greatest achievements in British-German cultural exchanges.
