Synopsis

Amazon.com
Herreweghe does a brilliant job of capturing not only the sound but the spirit of Mendelssohn's musical evocation of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Period instruments confer a real advantage here--with ethereal, pure-toned flutes, soft strings, and the piercing glint of narrow-bore brass, Mendelssohn's scoring comes alive. Herreweghe's interpretation is wonderfully alert, charged with energy yet sensitive to the score's gentle, Romantic expressiveness. Superb sound and informative notes make this 1994 disc an offering not to be missed. --Ted Libbey
