SIMFestival 2022 comes to a close in this Finale Concert with works by Mozart, Zemlinsky and Mendelssohn.
Mendelssohn's second viola quintet dates from the last years of his composing career. By this point he had written all of his chamber music save the final string quartet, Op. 80. Within two years, Mendelssohn would be dead and this final quintet would remain unpublished due to his feeling that the work was somehow not finished.
It is a work full of absolute joy and thrill, the perfect end to our 2022 Festival.
