Notes & Reviews:

Featuring the some of the best possible performances, the 5 "big" symphonies are performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by Wolfgang Sawallisch (a Mendelssohn specialist). The youthful 13 String Symphonies, amazing creations of the teenager Felix, showing his prodigious gifts in counterpoint, harmony and his sheer abundance of brilliant ideas, are performed by the Amsterdam Sinfonietta, conducted by Lev Markiz.

Gramophone Magazine
This is a bracing yet sensitive performance... Sawallisch yields to no-one in the infectious bounce of the Scherzo, or the flowing, unaffected eloquence of the Adagio [of the Scottish]
