Description

Christopher Hogwood's first ever critical edition of the much performed concert overture goes back for the first time to all the sources. Hogwood examines not only Mendelssohn's autograph but also the first edition of the score and orchestral parts which Mendelssohn saw to print. A manuscript copy with additional music thought to have been performed under Mendelssohn's direction, but later deleted, as well as the composer's own two and four-hand piano arrangements of the composition were also taken into account. As with the other overtures in this series, the score contains a lengthy introduction, a critical commentary and facsimiles.
