Mendelssohn - Sinfonias 4 & 5 - Abbado, London SO

Without question, Abbado's Mendelsson symphony cycle, recorded in the mid 1980's, remains among the best. The highlights include splendid performances of the 4th and 5th symphonies, with the others almost as fine, with Abbado opting for brisk tempi and emphasizing the scores' broad orchestral textures. As expected, the London Symphony's sound is beautifully rich and warm. The sound quality is quite superb, though may be a bit dry in comparison to recordings made at the Vienna Philharmonic's concert hall. Avid fans of Abbado and Mendelssohn's music will surely want to acquire this cd.
