Felix Mendelssohn managed the rare feat of composing twelve symphonies by the age of 15. However these string sinfonias were never published with their own opus numbers and thus regarded as ‘substandard’. The first ‘real’ symphony dates from 1824 and was published as no.1, a few years later he composed his fifth. This live recording offers superb interpretations of the two works, whose origins are so close to each other and allows fascinating insights into the musical world of the young Mendelssohn.
