Mendelssohn: Symphonies 3 & 4 - Claudio Abbado, London Symphony Orchestra
Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 3 in A minor, Op. 56 'Scottish'; Symphony No. 4 in A major, Op. 90 'Italian'
“This version has been much admired, justly so for the fabulous playing of the LSO, the fleet delicacy of the Scherzo (the clarinet's pianissimo on the theme's repeat is a delightful touch, heard on no other recording), and the fierce attack of the finale, here truly guerriero.”
