HAYDN Violin Concerto No. 1 in C Major THOMAS ADÈS Violin Concerto “Concentric Paths” MENDELSSOHN Symphony No. 4, “Italian” Imagine lush green olive groves, picturesque vineyards and the fresh scent of lemon and orange trees drifting in on a warm summer breeze. Mendelssohn’s long-awaited journey to Italy inspired his cheerful Fourth Symphony, one of his most vibrant and popular works. From beginning to end, the “Italian” Symphony is jam-packed with energy, lovely melodies and gorgeous orchestral writing. Superb violinist Augustin Hadelich joins the Kansas City Symphony in Haydn’s beautiful First Violin Concerto, one of the most-performed violin concertos of the mid-18th century, and the mesmerizing “Concentric Paths” by contemporary composer Thomas Adès.
