The ever-popular Ivor Bolton, unforgettable in Salzburg, makes a guest appearance with the BSinfonieorchester Basel, one of Switzerland's great orchestras, of which he is now principal conductor. Felix Mendelssohn's always stirring "Scottish Symphony" with its romantic sound pictures from the landscape and history of Scotland is one of the pieces he particularly loves. But one could also title this evening "Three Prodigies", because the siblings Fanny and Felix were just as much so as Wolfgang Amadé Mozart. Yes, Fanny too, she just had a harder time than her brother at the time because she was a woman. Her Overture in C major is top-class music of the early Romantic period, full of effervescent ideas, truly "con fuoco", fiery. The piece was written in 1832, around the same time that Felix sketched his symphony. The Mendelssohn siblings loved Mozart and so it is a wonderful fit when we hear one of the great Viennese master piano concertos of the local "genius loci" in between, the one in D minor KV 466. The young Albanian pianist Marie-Ange Nguci is considered one of the great talents of the present and will make her Salzburg debut with it.
