Baroque and early Classical expert Nicholas McGegan brings his infectious enthusiasm to a light and buoyant program. 18th century delights by Mozart, who composed his youthful Violin Concerto No. 3 when he was only 19, and Rameau prepare the way for early 19th century classics by Schubert and Mendelssohn. Both young composers in their early 20s found inspiration from the beauty, art, vitality and happiness of Italy. Norwegian violinist Henning Kraggerud makes a welcome return as concerto soloist.
