Happy 203rd birthday mendelssohn! Yes, we know you were a genius…between the ages of twelve and fourteen you wrote TWELVE string symphonies. If you haven’t heard much of his work…here’s what you should listen to.
Symphony 1 + 4
Piano Trio No. 1
Song Without Words
Wedding March from Midsummer’s Night Dream
This is a good surface collection to get you started. If you need “deeper” hits of excellence, I’d be glad to steer you in the right direction. Happy Listening!
Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 11 : II : Andante
Kurt Masur and Gewandhaus Orchestra
