Notes & Reviews:

This newly reissued 5-CD budget boxed set offers critically acclaimed recordings of Mendelssohn's major orchestral music by Kurt Masur and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra featuring Cyprien Katsaris and Barbara Bonney. Gramophone wrote: "...the excitement rises spontaneously from the music-making" and The New York Times wrote about pianist Cyprien Katsaris: "Here is a genuine thinker at the piano...It almost sounded like a time machine had taken us back to the best of the golden age pianists."
