The presence of the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig for two concerts at the LAC allows us to deepen our knowledge of the chamber music repertoire of the Gewandhaus' most famous musical director: Felix Mendelssohn. In the Teatrostudio, we will discover some jewels of Mendelssohn's production, including a Trio, a Piano Quartet and the second Cello Sonata. All of these are works have an incredible musical depth, an almost unexpected quality for a composer who is sometimes accused of showing superficial elegance only.

The concerts in the Sala Teatro will give the opportunity to hear Mendelssohn's “Scottish” Symphony (23 October 2019) and his Violin Concerto (6 February 2020).
