Mendelssohn’s “Scotch” Symphony and Mozart’s “Double Piano Concerto in E-Flat major” featuring Catherine Lan and Tao Lin
Husband and wife duo Catherine Lan and Tao Lin were regular performers during SFSO’s virtual Intermission Music Series, presented for free during Covid shutdown. Also known as Duo Beaux Arts, they join SFSO on the mainstage for the first time, performing Mozart’s Concerto for Two Pianos in E-flat Major, one of the limited number of works for two or more solo instruments with orchestra.
Some of Mendelssohn’s most brilliant musical inspirations came from his travels. While on holiday in Scotland, he was particularly moved by the picturesque, evocative ruins of Holyrood Chapel in Edinburgh, the inspiration for his Symphony No. 3 in A minor, Op. 56 — also known as the “Scottish” or “Scotch Symphony.”
