Promotional event posters for a performance of Mendelssohn’s Concerto No. 1 in Florence, Italy. Each of the posters represents the mood of each movement, as do the individual punctuation marks used repeatedly to represent the piano notes — an exclamation mark for the motion meant to be played “with fire,” a comma representing the “walking” pace of the second movement, and a caret representing the energy in the “fast and lively” final movement. Differing weights in each glyph create larger motions in the composition, and unique color schemes differentiate the moods of each movement.
