With effervescent grace, melodic appeal, and tenderness that speaks straight to the heart, it’s little wonder Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto ranks among the best loved in the repertoire. Finnish violinist Elina Vähälä emanates “abundant spirit, sensitivity, and imagination” (Chicago Tribune), and fellow Finn Jukka-Pekka Saraste leads one of the great late-Romantic symphonies, known for a soaringly majestic theme inspired by swans in flight, and a striking ending in which silence speaks as profoundly as sound.
