Mendelssohn: Concerto MWV O 4 for violin, piano and orchestra

Decca publishes the new CD that marks the beginning of the collaboration between Roberto Prosseda and the great Israeli violinist Shlomo Mintz. The disc includes Mendelssohn's Concerto for violin, piano and orchestra, recorded with the Flanders Symphony Orchestra conducted by Jan Latham-Koenig, in the newly rediscovered version with wind instruments and timpani. Mintz and Prosseda have chosen to play the alternative cadenza composed by Mendelssohn for the first movement (world premiere recording). The CD also includes the Concerto in D minor for violin and strings and the String Symphony No. 10.
