Notes & Reviews:

Recorded live at the 2004 Stuttgart European Music Festival, this CD offers Mendelssohn's two most popular symphonies in revelatory performances led by Roger Norrington, whose verbal introductions to both works are included in the recording. This release received five stars and a 'Recording of the Month' from the German music magazine 'Fono Forum'.

Gramophone Magazine
There are predictable revelations of texture, phrasing (with lighter, shorter and more varied bow strokes) and balance (usually in favour of woodwind and brass)...the Scherzo has an elfin delicacy, chuckling mischief in the air.
