The popular Spanish conductor Juanjo Mena collaborates with Lithuanian violinist Julian Rachlin in Mendelssohn’s evergreen Violin Concerto, among the most charming works in the standard repertoire. Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No. 44, Trauer (“Mourning”), is one of the composer’s most serious and closely worked symphonies, written during a period of experimentation that saw the composer rapidly expanding the potential of the genre. Closing the program are two works from the 1920s by the great Czech composer Leoš Janáček: a suite of music from his folk-tale opera The Cunning Little Vixen and his brass-dominated Sinfonietta.
