Notes & Reviews:

Besides containing Mendelssohn's Fourth Symphony, the "Italian" in the version that we are used to hearing, this new recording from Gardiner and the Vienna Philharmonic also contains the world premiere recording of Mendelssohn's own revised version of 1834. Most changes concern subtle details of scoring, melodic contour, and harmonic vocabulary. Only in the finale did Mendelssohn substantively alter the design of the composition.
