The Music Both Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn wrote a plethora of sumptuous songs. This lunchtime concert, leading on from this morning’s look at manuscripts and paintings, illuminates the sometimes complex relationship between the siblings, and features some of their finest and most personal works.

The Artists Pianist Eugene Asti is well known to festival audiences as ‘a model partner, commentator and animator’ (Gramophone). He’s joined by two former Oxford Song Young Artists, soprano Harriet Burns and tenor Alessandro Fisher, both now enjoying soaring careers.
