Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Not quite all of Mendelssohn’s inventive output for piano and orchestra, but a sizeable representation even so, spanning a period from 1822 to 1837. Such music, full of Classical sensibility and early Romantic imagination, finds Katin and Ogdon in limpid form, equally responsive to the Mozartian/Hummelian dimensions of Mendelssohn’s alternately bustling, thoughtful keyboard style. Detailed orchestral support, too."

-- Ates Orga, BBC Music Magazine
