One of the most beloved of overtures, Mendelssohn's "The Hebrides" introduces music inspired by landscape and seascape. From the Scottish coast, we move to a meadow of wildflowers for Mahler's gentle "Blumine". Elisabeth Adkins, Associate Concertmaster of the National Symphony Orchestra, plays Vaughan
Williams' lilting "The Lark Ascending". Beethoven's Symphony No. 8, composed in 1812, brims with humor and a crackling finale that Tchaikovsky called a "symphonic masterpiece".
