Notes & Reviews:

Mitropoulos was an early pioneer of the Mendelssohn symphonies, notably in the US where they were hardly ever played, and recorded both of them in the studio for Sony in 1952 with the New York Philharmonic but these have not been available for many years. These live recordings from 1957 and 1960 taken from the Original WDR Master Tapes show Mitropoulos relaxed and at his best. The sound, like all the WDR transfers, is suitably brilliant and detailed.
