Mendelssohnís exhilarating Italian Symphony is one of the warmest vivacious and most melodic works in the repertoire and has understandably become one of the most famous works in the catalogue. Evidence of his mastery and freshness is so abundant.

The First Piano Concerto is no less appealing, with its catchy tunes, brilliantly exciting writing and romantic sweep-virtuosic rather than profound, overflows with youthful ťlan. These works are coupled with his most famous and glittering shorter compositions, including his celebrated Hebrides Overture. These famous Mendelssohn works are treated to first-rate performances and sound.

This is marvellous playing in every respect: fresh, sparkling and dashing in the fast movements, poetic and touching in the slower ones. He despatches the Capriccio brilliant with similar aplomb, and the recording balance is admirably judged, with rich, truthful recorded sound
The Penguin Complete Guide

Mendelssohnís First Piano Concerto is an entirely delightful and comparatively well-kept secret, conceived in the composerís head during the journey which led to the writing of the Italian Symphony, and bubbling over with much of that workís melodic exuberance.
