Kodály Dances of Galánta

Conductor Mélisse Brunet and cellist Amit Peled will make their Cleveland debut with CityMusic Cleveland in a wonderful program called “Hidden Gems”


Fanny Mendelssohn inherited the same musical gifts as a composer and pianist as her famous brother, Felix, but the social conventions and lack of professional opportunities for women in the early 19th century greatly limited her fully utilizing them. Her Overture in C major was composed when she was 25 for one of the Mendelssohn family’s elaborate Sunday concerts. Fanny’s music is complemented on this CityMusic program by lesser-known works by well-known composers: Camille Saint-Saëns’ Symphony in A minor, as well as his formally adventurous Cello Concerto No. 1, with Israeli-American soloist Amit Peled; and Zoltán Kodály’s rousing Dances of Galanta, based on the Gypsy music of his Hungarian homeland.
