The recordings of all Mendelssohn symphonies by Kammerakademie Potsdam under the direction of Antonello Manacorda for Sony Classical have been euphorically praised: “Great art of phrasing, rousing romantic élan and a well-balanced plasticity of the overall sound are only some of the trump cards played. […] Manacorda and the Kammerakademie Potsdam know exactly how to offer listening alternatives without stretching the bow too far or even relying on pure effect. […] Here one notices the pleasure the team has taken in playing this music.” (Rondo) “Not only does the warmly grounded, discreetly roughened sound of the orchestra turn our image of Mendelssohn upside down: Manacorda also designs with great attention to detail. He masterfully builds up phrases and balances the overall sound, and he has an unerring sense of tempo. Everything breathes here, the music is constantly in flow, […] [a] largely perfect picture.” (Concerti).

Now these sensational recordings are available for the first time in a 3-CD set. The Symphony No. 2 “Lobgesang”, which already enjoyed huge success during the composer’s lifetime and became one of Mendelssohn’s most frequently performed works, is particularly interesting because of its mixture of symphony and cantata, in which Mendelssohn does not juxtapose an instrumental and vocal / textual part (Bible quotations), but combines them musically and unites them into one great symphony. The soloists of the recording of this symphony are the sopranos Maria Bengtsson and Johanna Winkel and the tenor Pavol Breslik – as choir the renowned NDR Choir could be won.
