Mendelssohn: Violin Concertos

Mendelssohn wrote a lesser-known violin concerto in D minor (1822)  when he was only thirteen, the young violinist Alina Ibragimova (born 28 September 1985)  is playing a portrayal in itself of the music’s passion held in control through exquisite craft.  For the  most popular and admired of all of Mendelssohn’s compositions,  the Violin Concerto in E minor Op. 64 (1844),  Ibragimova has a glittering, knife-edge performance.  And with Mendelssohn’s other juvenile works, all the music is superbly performed and is a perfect additional to any collection.
