5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing performances, 30 Jan. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Mendelssohn - Symphonies 3 "Scottish" and 4 "Italian". (Audio CD)
This pairing of Mendelssohn's two most popular symphonies shows Blomstedt and the San Francisco Symphony at their best: these are performances that are never controversial but never routine either. There's really not much more to say except that it's hard to imagine wanting to hear this music played in any other way once one has heard these polished, alert and finely recorded renditions. Incidentally, I obtained my copy from this website as I could not find this disc anywhere in the U.S.!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pace, power and flexibility, 17 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mendelssohn - Symphonies 3 "Scottish" and 4 "Italian". (Audio CD)
As usual Blomstedt ortodox conducting rise a smile on my face. Two great symphonies by the young Mendelsshon are here
presented with grace and power. Fast and strong when needed, calm and sweet in the slow tempi.The DECCA sound is more than perfect and deserve the fame this company gets among audiophiles.All in all a very enjoyable disc of good music performed by a great conductor and a top orchestra.
