Notes & Reviews:

"Emmanuel Krivine's vision of Mendelssohn's symphonic evocation of Italy begins sunny, light and scintillating. That La Chambre Philharmonique is a period instrument orchestra, with here just 9 first violins, 8 seconds, 6 violas, 6 cellos and 3 double basses, is indicative of its capacity for buoyancy of texture and agility of articulation... if you want this coupling on period instruments, which I prefer in these works for their greater vibrancy of tone and clarity of rhythm, this Krivine CD is the one to go for. While carefully thought out in terms of phrasing and dynamics, these performances also have great spontaneity. You could imagine they were recorded live in concert." -MusicWeb
