Symphony No.4 in A major Opus 90 (1) Felix Mendelssohn
29 March: CD of the Week sees the collaboration of three of the world’s finest musicians playing Mendelssohn.
Last year, to commemorate Mendelssohn’s bicentennial year, Perlman teamed up with pianist Emanuel Ax and cellist Yo-Yo Ma to record the two Mendelssohn trios – and the result is electrifying.
It is always a special experience to make music with good friends,’ says violinist Itzhak Perlman. ‘When the idea of recording the Mendelssohn trios came up it was a very easy decision to make.’
Says Ax, ‘I hope that the pleasure we had will come through for our listeners’.
We reckon it certainly does!
