Hebrides Overture Archive
MENDELSSOHN: Symphony No. 3, “Scottish”; Hebrides Overture; SCHUMANN: Piano Concerto in a – Maria Joao Pires, p./ London Sym. Orch./ John Eliot Gardiner – LSO Live Pure Audio Blu-ray & SACD
Quite an impressive package, though the performances are uneven.
MENDELSSOHN: Violin Concerto in E Minor; The Hebrides Ov.; Violin Concerto in D Minor – Alina Ibragimova, v./ Orch. of the Age of Enlightenment/ Vladimir Jurowski – Hyperion
The familiar Mendelssohn staples receive their due, but the early Concerto in D Minor receives as pure a reading as we are likely to hear.
MENDELSSOHN: Symphony No. 3 “Scotch”; The Hebrides Ov. — London Sym. Orch./ Peter Maag – London/ORG (2 45 rpm vinyl)
Exceptional sonics from this 1957 Decca classic recording, now benefiting from 45 rpm mastering.
