Kenn Wagner, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra's first violinist, embarks on a musical journey with the Atlanta Phil, courtesy of Felix Mendelssohn. An early Romantic Era composer, Mendelssohn penned several major works during a tour of Europe from 1829 to 1831, including The Hebrides, Fingal's Cave
, inspired by a visit to Scotland, and his Symphony No. 4 in A Major, which resulted from a joyful trip to Italy. He called that work "the jolliest piece I have ever done." Also on the program is his Violin Concerto in E Minor, known both for its compositional innovation and long-lasting popularity. Guest soloist Wagner joined the Atlanta Symphony in 1994, and has since lent his talents to several esteemed chamber music ensembles, performing in recital in New Zealand, China and elsewhere.
