Inspired by his stormy visit to the isle of Staffa in 1829, a youthful Mendelssohn was to popularise Fingal’s Cave for evermore in his overture ‘The Hebrides’. After this lively opening we welcome the young Turkish cellist, Jamal Aliyev, to perform Haydn’s delightful cello concerto. And we finish with an ‘unfinished’ work by Schubert: his ever popular two-movement eighth symphony.
