Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy: Schauspielmusiken (Bernius) (Box mit 3 CDs)


Apart from his ingenious music for Shakespeare’s comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Felix Mendelssohn’s incidental music for plays is still overshadowed by his symphonies and vocal works. With his hallmark recording of the complete oratorios and choral works, Frieder Bernius has long ago proved that should be considered one of the world’s Mendelssohn experts. Bernius has recorded three of the composer’s incidental music compositions in the past years, demonstrating the extraordinary quality of this far too little-known music. These highly praised recordings are now published for the first time in an attractive box.

Aufgrund der diskographischen Seltenheit einer Gesamtaufnahme der Schauspielmusiken von Felix Mendelssohn und der feinsinnigen Interpretation unter der Leitung von Frieder Bernius sei der CD-Box eine klare Empfehlung ausgesprochen.
