Mozart: Concerto for Horn and Orchestra

Perhaps you watched Patricia Evans perform both of the Mozart and Strauss horn concertos as part of the WSO @ Home Friday Matinee Recitals online this summer.

Patricia reprises these treasured concertos with the orchestra paired with a beautiful reflection on harpsichord music by Domenico Scarlatti written by Canadian composer Rodney Sharman – a work last played by the WSO for the 2003 Winnipeg New Music Festival. The evening ends with Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 4, inspired by a trip to Italy.

Get more acquainted

  • Richard Strauss wrote his Horn Concerto No. 1 in two versions, one for piano accompaniment and one with an orchestra. The concertohas become the most frequently performed horn concerto written in the 19th century.


  • Besides the viola, which he’s played for more than 30 years, one of Maestro Raiskin’s favourite instrument is the French horn.


  • During Mendelssohn’s time, educated young men travelled through Europe in order to refine their character and cultural sense (what the Germans called Bildung). In 1829 and 1830, Mendelssohn undertook a grand tour of England, Scotland, Wales, and Italy. Along the way, the young composer visited the sites in Scotland, like Holyrood Abbey and Fingal’s Cave on the island of Staffa, which inspired the Hebrides Overture and his Third Symphony. While still working on these pieces, he traveled to Italy, which produced the ‘Italian Symphony’, his Symphony No. 4.
