Synopsis

Product Description
Joseph Swensen - Director and Violin

Dedicated to Dorothy Delay





This CD was recorded at Edinburgh's Usher Hall. The orchestra is led by its Principal Conductor Joesph Swensen, who also plays the solo part in the Violin Concerto.



Rather than being solely a composer, Felix Mendelssohn should be considered a polymath - educated and skilled in music, painting and drawing, languages, the classics, as well as being an accomplished sportsman, dancer and chess player. His musical accomplishments - of which composition was always the most important in his own eyes - also include performances as a virtuoso on the piano and organ, a gifted violinist, a conductor, and an administrator and editor who has left a legacy still respected and followed in the early twenty-first century.
