Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Mendelssohn’s youthful E Major Piano Sonata may seem lightweight for its time (1826), but it has all the nimbleness of spirit and melodic ingenuity that make his other early works so appealing. Murray Perahia’s 1984 recording presents it as decisive and mature as well, but the real treats here are the shorter works, most notably the beautifully involved 'Variations Sérieuses.'" -- Allan Kozinn "Mendelssohn’s youthful E Major Piano Sonata may seem lightweight for its time (1826), but it has all the nimbleness of spirit and melodic ingenuity that make his other early works so appealing.
