Freiburg Baroque Orchestra performed Mendelssohn's Scherzo, from A Midsummer Night's Dream, as an encore.
Spanish conductor Pablo Heras-Casado leads this magnificent period-instrument ensemble in a joyful program that features the “consistently inventive and illuminating” (New York Times) keyboardist Kristian Bezuidenhout.
Performance begins promptly at its scheduled time. There is no late seating.
This performance is approximately one hour and 27 minutes long, with one intermission.
