Program Note

Felix Mendelssohn (1809–1847)
Symphony No. 5 in D Major, Op. 107 “Reformation”
Composed 1830

October 31, 1517, is traditionally held to be the day that Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-five Theses to the door of All Saint’s Church in Wittenberg, an act that signaled the start of the Protestant Reformation. In this 500th anniversary year, it is worth revisiting Felix Mendelssohn’s fifth symphony, composed in 1830 to mark the tercentenary of the Augsburg Confession.
