Royal Northern Sinfonia

Vivaldi The Four Seasons
Mendelssohn Symphony No.4 ‘Italian’

Following the huge success of his sold-out Beethoven Violin Concerto last season, Julian Rachlin is back!

This time he treats us to Vivaldi’s ever-popular Four Seasons, complete with barking dog and chattering teeth, followed by Mendelssohn’s romantic response to the colour and atmosphere of Italy, described by the composer as ‘the happiest piece I have ever written’.
