Notes and Editorial Reviews

"These are Mendelssohn’s own arrangements of his early works. The Octet in E flat, for strings, sublime masterpiece of his 17th year, remains felicitious, captivating and touching in this piano-duo version, played with stylishness and vigour by the Israeli Yaara Tal and the German Andreas Groethuytsen."
