Notes & Reviews:
The sixth and final release of the complete Mendelssohn Symphonies by the Heidelberg Symphony Orchestra and Thomas Fey. Symphony No. 2, called "Lobgesang" by the composer, is a fitting and grand conclusion to this project, released in celebration of Mendelssohn's 200th anniversary. Thomas Fey's recordings of Mendelssohn's complete symphonies reveal the composer to be a passionate, energetic composer, embodying the true spirit of early Romanticism. These recordings will inspire a second look at Mendelssohn, the Symphonist.
Markus Schäfer...rises to the occasion of the most dramatic episode in the work...without veering into the operatic; Eleonore Marguerre answers beautifully...There is, throughout, splendid playing from the Heidelburgers.
