Introducing Carlo Citterio, composer

In Tafelmusik meets Tchaikovsky, we are premiering a new arrangement of Mendelssohn’s famous Scherzo from A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Tafelmusik asked composer Carlo Citterio to write the arrangement in keeping with our season theme of Old meets New, and in order to offer a taste of Mendelssohn’s late work to contrast to the early symphonies that open the concert. Carlo is Elisa’s brother, and he has previously written cadenzas for concertos by Mozart and Beethoven performed by Elisa with Tafelmusik.
