Karajan Academy

From familiar Bach to unknown Mendelssohn

This concert features a musical discovery: a violin concerto by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy. Not, however, the famous E minor, but an early work which Mendelssohn composed when he was 13 years old and was never published in his lifetime. The soloist is Caroline Widmann, who also directs this performance of the work by the students of the Karajan Academy. In contrast, the other items of the programme are well known: two cantatas and the Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 by Johann Sebastian Bach.
