- Fanny Mendelssohn Overture in C major
- Natalia Ponomarchuk conductor
- Alexander Melnikov piano
Sister and brother, husband and wife: for the Mendelssohns and the Schumanns, musical genius was a family affair, and when you hear their music played together it evokes a whole, wonderfully vivid world of love, friendship and imagination without limits.
The distinguished Ukrainian conductor Natalia Ponomarchuk follows Felix and Fanny from their childhood home in Berlin to the moors and mists of 19th-century Scotland, while pianist Alexander Melnikov explores the relationship between Clara and Robert Schumann – a husband and wife united in their devotion to the piano, to art and to each other.

Ponomarchuk's energetic, flamboyant conducting style was always fun to observe.
Melnikov’s performances are powerfully played and smartly shaped, always drawing out the coloristic strengths of the instrument at hand.
The Arts Fuse
With a striking resemblance to Jurowski's spirited way of conducting, Natalia Ponomarchuk brings the brilliant power back to the orchestra.
