5.0 out of 5 stars blissful, 22 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Mendelssohn - Piano Concertos Nos 1 and 2, Piano Sonata Op. 6 (Audio CD)
These concertos can sound a bit underwhelming in the wrong hands, but played as they are by Murray Perahia they come up irrepressibly fresh and blooming. In fact they are a kind of pianistic perfection, full of melody and virtuoso flights - plumb in the centre of most people's idea of classical music, but here given with a direct, robust sound that thrills as the music goes from wave to wave of pure transport. The solo works are also very lovely; they simply make you forget other music as you are swept away (even more than you already have been by the concertos). There is a trill at a climax in the first movement of Concerto no. 2 which makes you revise your feeling that no. 1 is better - I've never heard a trill like it, high and turning on itself with the gay abandon of a drunken nightingale in urgent celebration.
