In the most well-known violin concertos ever written, Vivaldi evokes the sounds of the world’s natural wonders—singing birds in springtime, raging summer thunderstorms, autumnal countryside scenes, and the icy beauty of winter. Mendelssohn echoes Vivaldi’s talent for musical storytelling in his ethereal Overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and selections from Handel’s Water Music round out this program of familiar favorites.
