The BSO returns to the Queen’s Theatre with its Artist in Residence, horn player extraordinaire Felix Klieser who performs Mozart’s famous Fourth Horn Concerto – a winsome gallop through the Austrian countryside. Most famous for its rollicking third movement, it’s a popular party piece for French horn players, but such vivid and varied ground is covered here that you’ll feel like you’ve been on a bracing hike. Mendelssohn’s impressions of a Scottish walking holiday were the inspiration behind this stirring symphony, dedicated to Queen Victoria. Its haunting recurring theme came to the young composer as he explored the ruined chapel at Holyrood Palace. Inspired by his beloved Bohemian countryside and suffused with Czech dances, Dvořák’s Czech Suite paints an evocative portrait of his homeland and people.
