Felix Mendelssohn:
Hebrides Overture -
Violin Concerto in E minor -
Symphony No.3 in A minor "Scottish" -

Scottish Chamber Orchestra
Joseph Swensen - conductor/violin


Rather than solely a composer, Felix Mendeissohn should be considered a polymath - educated and skilled in music, painting and drawing, languages and the classics, as well as being an accomplished sportsman, dancer and chess player.   The list of his musical accomplishments - of which composition was always the most important in his own eyes - also includes virtuoso pianist and organist, gifted violinist, conductor, administrator and editor, who left a legacy still respected and followed in the early 21st century.
