LSO Live presents Sir John Eliot Gardiner's award-winning Mendelssohn series together in its entirety for the first time. Captured over three seasons during critically acclaimed concerts at Barbican Hall, these recordings offer listeners the definitive account of Gardiner's unique take on Mendelssohn: a blend between the conductor's wide-ranging expertise and the London Symphony Orchestra's signature sound. This box set includes the complete Mendelssohn symphonies, three of the composer's most popular overtures and Gardiner's landmark version of A Midsummer Night's Dream. This five-disc set allows the option of listening to the complete program in ulta-high definition stereo and multi-channel audio on four SACDs or one Pure Audio Blu-Ray.
