MANNHEIMER MORGEN

Mendelssohn Concerto in Mannheim
They really do exist, those moments of perfection in which everything positive comes together and melts into a musical experience of sheer heavenliness. In the first Academy concert of the season, the formula was simple: Soddy+Hadelich+NTO=optimum Mendelssohn. NTO stands for National Theatre Orchestra Mannheim, Soddy for Mannheim’s principal  conductor, and Hadelich for the best violinist in the world. Any further questions? Of course the relativity of such judgements preceeds Einstein, but anyone who loves their Mendelssohn violin concerto to be fleet, flexible and refined will have relished pure indulgence. For all his virtuosity, Hadelich’s playing never loses its profundity.
