Mendelssohn Symphonies 1 3 NDR Radiophilharmonie Andrew Manze Pentatone Sacd

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)
Symphony No. 1 in C minor Op. 11
Symphony No. 3 in A minor Op. 56 "Scottish"

NDR Radiophilharmonie / Andrew Manze

Mendelssohn's warmly lyrical and evocative Scottish symphony is paired with his confident and precocious first symphony for the first in a series of recordings in multi-channel surround sound for PENTATONE by the conductor Andrew Manze and the NDR Radiophilharmonie.

Inspired by his visits to Scotland and the Hebrides and the romantic novels of SirWalter Scott, his outstanding Symphony No. 3 in A minor ("Scottish") is a colourful reminiscence of its rugged landscapes steeped in history, and an affectionate homage to the proud Highlanders he met there. It was an instant success on its first performance and rivals the popularity of the overture The Hebrides, also inspired by the splendour of Scotland. No less impressive is his masterly Symphony No. 1 in C minor, composed when he was just 15 years old. From its noisy and impetuous opening to its triumphant conclusion, this confident and adventurous work shows the influence of Mozart, Haydn and Weber but the effect is unmistakeably Mendelssohnian with fugal passages, unforgettable melodies and busy, inventive scoring.
