Notes & Reviews:

This release fulfills a modern fascination with complete recordings, especially of symphonic cycles. The quality of Mendelssohn's symphonies, combined with their astonishing obscurity, makes them an extremely appealing release. The multi-talented Jörg Widmann joines this new release not only as an instrumentalist and conductor but as a "composer colleague" of Mendelssohn, making this project all the more astounding. ORFEO is delighted to present not just a first-class soloist, Sergei Nakariakov, on this album but also a work written especially for him by the Artistic Director of the project, namely Jörg Widmann's Ad Absurdam.
