DG125 – Nelsons conducts Mendelssohn & Schumann – with Seong-Jin Cho
Seoul Arts Center
As part of the celebrations of DG125 – marking 125 years of the Yellow Label – Andris Nelsons and the Gewandhausorchester bring a programme rich in Leipzig's unrivalled musical heritage to the Seoul Arts Center. Felix Mendelssohn, one of Nelsons's celebrated predecessors as Gewandhauskapellmeister, is represented by his concert overture "Die schöne Melusine" and his atmospheric Symphony No. 3 "Scottish", inspired by his travels in Britain in 1829 and premiered at the Gewandhaus in 1842. Three years later, Robert Schumann completed his piano concerto, one of the most popular concertos in the repertoire, and that work completes the programme here, performed by Seong-Jin Cho, one of the most celebrated pianists of his generation.
