Notes & Reviews:

The Op.35 set of Preludes and Fugues is the most substantial single opus Mendelssohn wrote for solo piano. It is a mark of his reverence for the mighty Bach. On this fourth volume in Howard Shelley's critically-acclaimed compendium of Mendelssohn's complete piano music, the heavyweight work is coupled with selections from the popular fifth book of Songs without Words.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2016
A fascinating recital, warmly recorded and with absorbing notes from Mendelssohn scholar R Larry Todd.
