“I don’t think Mendelssohn gets the attention he deserves,” said Paavo Järvi at the start of the 2020-2021 season. Faced with this observation, he undertook to record a complete cycle of Mendelssohn’s orchestral works with the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra for his second season as Music Director.

On the program are the composer’s five symphonies, including the second, known as ‘Lobgesang’, half-symphony, half-cantata, with the participation of the Zürcher Sing-Akademie, tenor Patrick Grahl and sopranos Chen Reiss and Marie Henriette Reinhold.

Finally, A Midsummer Night’s Dream , based on Shakespeare’s play, the overture to which Mendelssohn composed when he was just 17, concludes this very fine cycle.
