Excellent set of recordings. Claudio Abbado was the conductor of the LSO in the mid eighties, when I think these recordings were made, and the LSO was performing very well. I am happy to them.

I am not a great fan of the Mendelssohn symphonies but, at this price and with Abbado conducting the LSO, it was a bargain not be missed. In addition to the symphonies you get seven Mendelssohn overtures, some of which are not often heard but well worth listening to. Don't miss this compilation.

Apart from Abbado's wonderfully dramatic interpretations of the symphonies, the quality of the recording itself is superb. Enough to convert the strongest critic to Mendelssohn...

An amazing performance of the 4th (Italian) symphony. The best I've ever heard. LSO's strings were at their peak in the 1980's and Abbado gets the very best out of them in this exceptional work by Mendelssohn. Don't miss this and other great performances in this collection.

Mendelssohn's symphonies are so lyrical and pleasant to listen to. The Scottish and Italian are performed often, but I found the others also well worth the listen. The performances are excellent. Nothing to say against this.
