Notes & Reviews:

"The Sonata of the 18-year-old Mendelssohn is crammed full of ideas and youthful passion...Despite the overreaching of the piece, the emotional sincerity and superb construction of the music carries the day. The softly virtuosic Scherzo movement is a wonderful example of Mendelssohn's "Fairy" music. Frith plays the Sonata, and the balance of the program with clarity and strength, and follows the dramatic contours with vaulting confidence..." -Burwasser, Fanfare
