Notes and Editorial Reviews

After visiting the legendary Fingal's Cave in Scotland, Mendelssohn jotted down what would become the opening theme of the overture, including it in a letter written home that same evening. The overture, an idyllic symphonic fantasy, was completed a year later in Rome. Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto is one of the most beautiful and popular works of all time. He began composing the concerto in 1838 and completed it in the autumn of 1844. His Symphony No. 4 portrays the impressions and experiences Mendelssohn collected during his journey through Italy in 1830/31. He was enchanted by the country and fascinated by the Italians' lust for life. The Symphony captures the atmosphere of Italy on an elegant, melodious and highly romantic canvas. The Read more 21 year old German violinist Daniel Rohn studied in Munich. He has won audiences over with his imaginative and ebullient style. The Cappella Istropolitana is one of Europe's most distinguished chamber orchestras, frequently compared with the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields. The Cappella Istropolitana has already recorded more than 90 CDs. Swiss conductor David Heer studied in Bern and in Munich. Read less
