The Violin Concerto and the Symphony no. 2 Mendelssohn's "Lobgesang" as well as the composer Fanny Hensel's work "Hero und Leander" are masterpieces of the classical and romantic repertoire.

Mendelssohn's violin concerto influenced the concertos of several composers, who used features of it for their own concertos. Tchaikovsky, Sibelius or Liszt, for example, were inspired by the German composer to compose their works. This is why Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto is one of the most popular and performed concertos of all time. It requires total mastery of the instrument and a technical precision matched by few soloists. Maria Florea, born of the Trio da Vinci, takes on the challenge and is sure to move us and touch our hearts.
