Notes & Reviews:

Following the global success of his earlier recording of Beethoven and Berlioz, Sir Roger Norrington leads his Stuttgart ensemble on a voyage of discovery into the works of Felix Mendelssohn. Norrington and the SWR play with the pure tone so talked about by the old masters, before the arrival of 20th century vibrato. These recordings five the opportunity to hear how a modern symphony orchestra can reconnect with its roots and embrace the traditions of the past. Recorded live at the 2004 Stuttgart European Musical Festival, with the conductors spoken introductions to the concert in English.
