Gramophone Classical Music Guide

2010

“Mendelssohn was 14 when he completed his first two-piano Concerto in E major, and still only 15 when he followed it with a considerably longer (rather too long) and more ambitious second in A flat. And it's to the great credit of Benjamin Frith and Hugh Tinney that without a score at hand, you would be hard-pressed to guess who was playing what.
You'll be as impressed by their attunement of phrasing in lyrical contexts as by their synchronisation in all the brilliant semiquaver passagework in which both works abound. Their uninhibited enjoyment of the imitative audacities of the later work's finale is a real tour de force.
Under Prionnsías O'Duinn the RTE Sinfonietta plays with sufficient relish to allow you to forget that the recording is perhaps just a little too close. In short, a not-to-be-missed opportunity to explore the young Mendelssohn at bargain price.”

Gramophone Magazine

“To the great credit of Benjamin Frith and Hugh Tinney that without score in hand, you would be hard pressed to guess who was playing what. In short, a not-to-be-missed opportunity to explore the precocious young Mendelssohn at super-bargain price.”
