Notes & Reviews:

Conductor Riccardo Chailly continues his long association with the Gewandhausorchester with this all-new recording of Mendelssohn. Each work was influenced by the composer's travels to England and Scotland and presents Mendelssohn at his most programmatic. Mendelssohn began working on the rarely performed Piano Concerto No. 3 in 1830 (the same time as the other works on this album) though he eventually set his sketches aside. He resumed composition on later trips to England in the 1840s, but never completed the work. Through meticulous research, the sketches have been orchestrated and the composition completed while remaining faithful to Mendelssohn's style.

The Guardian
Chailly conducts both the familiar Third Symphony, the ¬Scottish, and the Hebrides Overture in unfamiliar guises...The differences are telling, though it's the superb performances that Chailly obtains from his great orchestra that really make their mark.
