Notes & Reviews:

Artist Nikolaus Harnoncourt and the Camber Orchestra of Europe combine efforts to perform Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 3 and 4 in this new, Apex summer release. Inspired by a painting, Symphony No. 3 is a wide, emotional work which sings the struggle between love and fate. Its companion title, Symphony No. 4 draws its inspirations from Italy and is among the first large multi-movement works to begin in a major key and end in the tonic minor.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Teatro Comunale, Ferrara (10/1991).
