I’m preoccupied with Felix Mendelssohn at the moment. Right now, am between the first two of three pre-concert talks that I’m giving for the CBSO’s Mendelssohn symphonies series, which is being conducted by Ed Gardner, and the glories of the music seem endless – galvanising, thrilling, visceral, quicksilver…

He was replaced on stage by a stage manager in costume who went through the moves, and offstage by another tenor plucked from a Walküre rehearsal. The show went on…
