MENDELSSOHN: Symphony No. 2 in B-flat Major, “Lobgesang” – soloists/Bavarian Radio Orch./Pablo Heras-Casado – Harmonia mundi
Mendelssohn’s exalted hymn to Gutenberg and the German Reformation receives an illuminated reading from Heras-Casado.
MENDELSSOHN: Symphony No. 2, “Lobgesang” – Soloists/Chorus/ Tonkünstler-Orchester/ Andres Orozco-Estrada – Preiser
A very recommendable version of Mendelssohn’s hybrid work.
