Notes & Reviews:

"Mendelssohn's String symphonies, written in his mid-teens, seem to be the darlings of record producers lately, and with good reason. They are cheerful, lively, melodic works, full of energy and early-romantic charm. The disc at hand is Volume 2 in a series from Naxos that could turn out to be the best of them all...Ward and company give us big, bold, rich performances, without sacrificing warmth and detail...All in all, an outstanding bargain..." -McClain, ARG
