Video: Patricia Kopatchinskaja performs Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in D Minor

Patricia Kopatchinskaja performs Felix Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in D Minor at Wooddale Church.

Patricia Kopatchinskaja’s tenure as an Artistic Partner began last weekend with concerts in Uptown Minneapolis, Eden Prairie, and Mahtomedi. The remarkable performances captivated audiences—Pioneer Press critic Rob Hubbard described the first night as an “adrenaline-fueled thrill ride of a concert, one that inspired three standing ovations and will doubtless be one of the year’s most memorable concerts in any genre.”

The second half of the concert began with Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in D Minor. Not as well known as the composer’s legendary E Minor violin concerto, this work was composed when Mendelssohn was only 13 years old. We’ve shared a video excerpt above and on our YouTube channel.

If you didn’t get to last weekend’s concerts, you’ll have another change to hear Patricia perform with us this weekend at concerts in Wayzata, St. Paul, and Minneapolis. Tickets + Info
