Description

About the Album

Mendelssohn was just 22 when he wrote his G minor Piano Concerto. Even at that age, he was no novice in the genre, having composed three earlier piano concertos: one in A minor for piano and strings and two (in E major and A flat) for two pianos and orchestra. The G minor Concerto, however, is designated No. 1. It was written for (and dedicated to) the piano prodigy Delphine von Schauroth (1814–1887).

Though ‘a thing quickly thrown off’, as Mendelssohn described it to his father, this ‘fourth’ concerto for his own instrument is highly experimental in contracting three movements into one, dispensing with any long orchestral exposition of the themes, using fanfares between movements to connect them, largely eschewing virtuoso self-display and omitting any cadenzas.
