I think I can safely say that Mendelssohn is perhaps one of the least understood composers. How often have I heard his works, his virtuosity — certainly measured by a precision in the counterpoint and the natural elegance of his sentences and his romantic dramas — reduced to a series of notes that are only too-well-chiseled. While respecting the text, I tried to restore his grandeur and brilliance, as well as the depth of his expression. Maybe these ‘Songs Without Words’ will speak to your ears in the end!!!
