Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Good solid performance, as would be expected from the conductor Kurt Masur. The Leipzig Gewandhaus orchestra was directed by Felix Mendelssohn himself from 1835-1847, so this performance is in the Mendelssohn tradition. This recording was made in 1988 when Leipzig was in East Germany.
The work itself is not really a symphony in the sense of a Beethoven symphony. It was written to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Guttenberg's invention of printing. There is not much musical development here in terms of symphonic form. The work does have a "hook" or melodic element which is difficult to get out of your mind (now vital in modern pop-music).
The Hymn of Praise has a charming instrumental introduction, followed by settings of extracts from various affirmative Psalms (in German). A translation is provided in the sleeve note. The soloists and choir are excellent - as are the conductor and orchestra.
If you are not familiar with this work you are unlikely to be disappointed if you enjoy music of the same era from Mendelssohn or Schumann.

THis symphony is a real mixed bag. In its outward form it resembles Beethoven's Ninth - three orchestral movements followed by a choral finale. There the similarity ends. The orchestral movements are banal. But the finale is beautiful and dramatic and includes what have now become well known hymn tunes. It was worth it for the finale

Format: Audio CD
Good quality production which I thoroughly enjoyed. Was not aware it was sung in German as this was not clear on the website. As I purchased it to learn for a concert in which I am singing this was a little disconcerting, but I enjoyed it nevertheless!

No english version seems to be available, so this was best available. Very fast, which for practice, is a real challenge!
