Symphony No.4 in A Op 90 - Italian - 4th movement Mendelssohn Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Mendelssohn wrote his 4th symphony "The Italian" in Berlin in 1832, just after returning from a lovely holiday in Italy. It doesn't actually contain any Italian folk tunes, but its lively warm melodies capture the pleasures Mendelssohn found in Italian art, people and scenery.

The 4th movement starts with some crashing chords by the whole orchestra, led by the strings. Then the fiendishly fast 6/8 dance tunes start, with a Tarantella tune from Naples, which with its similar cousin from Rome, the Saltarello, dominates this fast movement. It is played on the flute.
