Notes & Reviews:

Bringing together four of Mendelssohn's earliest works, this collection also showcases Marriner and the Academy in one of their earliest recordings - that of three of the composer's String Symphonies. Warmly recorded and virtuosically despatched, they are coupled with a scintillating (unnumbered) Piano Concerto by Mendelssohn, with John Ogdon as a fleet-fingered soloist.
