A Scottish Journey

The Hebrides, the Violin Concerto, the Scottish Symphony - three of Mendelssohn's finest classics, each embodying his Romantic spirit, inventiveness and vibrant capacity for melody. Spanish-Catalan conductor Josep Pons directs the SSO with our guest soloist, the young American violinist Stefan Jackiw, described by The Strad as "truly sensational, showing a talent and maturity that belie[s] his years".

As close to perfection as music can get - The Globe and Mail on Stefan Jackiw
