American Classical Orchestra: Beethoven, Mozart, Mendelssohn

Krista Bennion Feeney, violin
American Classical Orchestra
Thomas Crawford, conductor


Mendelssohn: Violin Concerto
Beethoven: Symphony No 8
Mozart: Symphony No 35 ‘Haffner’

Krista Bennion Feeney (NY Times 2014 – ‘just the right mixture of refinement and rusticity’) performs the legendary Mendelssohn Concerto on a historic violin with the same configuration as that of Mendelssohn’s concertmaster Ferdinand David in 1845. Mozart’s thrilling Haffner Symphony and the Beethoven Eighth round out the opening night concert of the ACO’s 30th Season conducted by Thomas Crawford.

The Mendelssohn Violin Concerto is the most famous of all violin concerti. Krista Bennion Feeney is concertmaster of the Orchestra of St. Luke’s and a frequent guest at ACO. Her violin was made in 1809 and has the distinction of having never been modernized. Thus, this violin has the same proportions, materials, and sound as that of Ferdinand David, Mendelssohn’s concertmaster at the Gewandhaus Orchestra. For this concert, the ACO string section will use the type of gut strings that were used by Mendelssohn, providing a unique window into his actual sound world.

The virtuosic Beethoven Eighth Symphony has a panoply of compositional devices that delight audiences and challenge musicians. Mozart’s Haffner Symphony is among his most high-spirited works, known for its brilliant overture and singing melodies.
