Notes & Reviews:

This is the third volume of the complete Mendelssohn Symphonies. In addition to their work on recording the complete Haydn symphonies, the Heidelberg Symphony Orchestra under the direction of conductor Thomas Fey chose to survey all the orchestral and string symphonies of Felix Mendelssohn. This important series will be finished in time for the Mendelssohn Year in 2009. As with their critically acclaimed recordings of Haydn, Beethoven, and Salieri, Fey and his musicians impress with an inspired and energetic interpretation.

International Record Review
The bracing exuberance of Mendelssohn's writing comes teeming off the page in these electrifying performances... ..Every note rings true as Fey inspires his magnificent players to virtuoso heights of darting textural interplay and staccato brilliance.
