Felix Mendelssohn: Piano Concerto No. 2 in d-minor
The Second Piano Concerto by Mendelssohn is a characteristic work from the composer: dramatic themes, virtuosic displays, and even some meditative moments. The work was premiered in 1837 with the composer as soloist, and it is a much more patient piece than the composer’s first piano concerto. Throughout the work, the orchestra serves to color the piano in a way where it is more than just an accompaniment. It’s our Evening Masterwork: the Piano Concerto No. 2 in d-minor by Felix Mendelssohn, tonight at 7 on Classical WSMR.
