Album information

Child prodigy, prolific composer, rediscoverer of Bach’s Passions and star composer in Britain; Felix Mendelssohn achieved a lot during his short life. His elegant, ingenuous and highly melodic music continues to captivate listeners to this day. Containing chamber-musical gems, symphonic works and all-time favourites such as the Violin concerto and the Venetian Gondola song, Mendelssohn Famous Pieces offers a fascinating portrait of the man that Robert Schumann crowned as the “Mozart of the nineteenth century.”

This compilation includes tracks featuring Johannes Moser, Alasdair Beatson, Denis Kozhukhin, Julia Fischer, Daniel Müller-Schott, Jonathan Gilad, Martin Helmchen, Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, Philippe Herreweghe, Vesko Eschkenazy, Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra, Marco Boni, Arabella Steinbacher, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Charles Dutoit, Bram Beekman, NDR Radiophilharmonie, and Andrew Manze.
