Notes and Editorial Reviews

Mendelssohn's three concertos for piano, two for violin, two for two pianos and the work recorded here for violin and piano, cover all the periods of his life, from 1822-1844. Although few such works survive in the modern concert repertoire, concertos for two or more instruments were quite popular in the early years of the 19th century. The Double Concerto in d minor was written in 1823 when the composer was 14 years old. It reveals the young composer faithful to his classical models, but already confidently surmounting the problems of form, and with a firm grasp of counterpoint and melodic shaping.
