June 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
“Midsummer Dreams & Afternoon Delights” – The Heifetz All-Star Mendelssohn program from 2019
Join us to revisit the gala celebration of the youthful masterpieces and profound mature works by child prodigy, virtuoso pianist, and supremely gifted composer Felix Mendelssohn, whose Overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream – written when he was just 17 – has been called “the greatest marvel of early maturity that the world has ever seen in music.” See Mendelssohn’s exquisite compositions brought to life by the violin prodigies, piano virtuosos, and mature master teachers of the Heifetz Institute, with an ensemble and program that reflects the brilliance of Mendelssohn himself – full of youthful exuberance, masterful expression, and peerless musicianship –from Abramson Recital Hall in Katzen Arts Center at American University in Washington, DC.
