    Karina Canellakis pairs Mendelssohn with his idol, the man whose music he described as "The greatest music in the world”: JS Bach. We hear contrasting sides of Bach: the brilliant and courtly concerto composer in his 30s, then the visionary, astounding master in his last years. Mendelssohn’s exhilarating and celebratory symphony makes a fine climax to the evening. Written to mark the 300th anniversary of a key date in The Reformation, nonetheless it is the inspiration of Bach that you hear throughout.

    THE FIRST TIME I PLAYED WITH THE SCOTTISH CHAMBER OCHESTRA, I FELT AN IMMEDIATE RAPPORT, BOTH MUSICALLY AND PERSONALLY, AND IT'S GROWN STRONGER EVER SINCE. SCO Leader, Benjamin Marquise Gilmore
