Vladimir Ashkenazy's truly magical account of Mendelssohn's most beautiful fairy music - A Midsummer Night's Dream - returns to the catalogue, coupled with another fantastical work, The First Walpurgisnacht, in a scintillating performance from Christoph von Dohnanyi.
“with an excellent, warm and vivid recording, superb orchestral playing and lively direction, it is thoroughly recommendable. What makes this CD so appealing, howver, is the composer's much rarer dramatic cantata, Die Erste Walpurgisnacht....an attractive double package, well worth exploring.”
