Notes & Reviews:

Mendelssohn's exhilarating 'Italian' Symphony is one of the warmest, most vivacious and melodic works in the repertoire and has understandably become a central work in the classical catalogue. Evidence of the composer's mastery and freshness is abundant in 'An Introduction to Felix Mendelssohn'.

The Gramophone
Mendelssohn's First Piano Concerto is an entirely delightful and comparatively well-kept secret, conceived in the composer's head during the journey which led to the writing of the Italian Symphony, and bubbling over with much of that work's melodic exuberance.
