‘This is Italy!’ Felix Mendelssohn wrote home when he had just arrived there for the first time. ‘And now has begun what I have always thought to be the supreme joy in life.’ He would later turn the impressions of his trip into music in his sun-drenched Italian Symphony. The other works in this programme also bask in the southern sun, with Poulenc’s heart-warming Concert Champêtre as its radiant centrepiece.
