Notes & Reviews:

"The pianists are well matched - one might expect no less from a duo who have been performing together for 15 years - and there's an infectious effervescence and badinage in their playing. Indeed, after sitting through so many recordings that substitute manic display for Mendelssohn's puckish repartee, I was immensely gratified to find a young pair of soloists who seemed to get it just right." -American Record Guide

Classic FM Magazine
Genova and Dimitrov indulge the music's glowing lyrical impulse whilst retaining a Mozartian deftness that is perfectly in tune with the music's gentle musings. Ulf Schirmer keeps his Munich players well on their collective toes, highlighted by some magical woodwind playing en route, and the recording combines detail and warmth to perfection.

Reviews

Lively but Academic Concertos from the young Mendelssohn
Mendelssohn is not quite a mature voice in these teenaged concertos, but there is plenty here for Genova and Dimitrov to get there teeth into: http://www.classical-cd-reviews.com/2010/11/mendelssohn-concertos-for-two-pianos.html
