Mendelssohn was Queen Victoria’s favourite composer. He made frequent visits to this country as pianist, conductor and composer, and had a great deal of influence on contemporary and subsequent English musicians. The concert includes some of these including two, Sullivan and Parry, who were knighted by the Queen and Elgar who was enobled by her successor. The main work is Mendelssohn’s ever popular Violin Concerto. There will be more English music when we celebrate the centenary of Benjamin Britten next October and November.
