BBC Radio 3: Disc of the week
Andrew McGregor says: “True to form this is a characterful, colourful account. Mendelssohn’s fairies have their wings in the air as they should but a few of them have their feet on the ground. There’s a rustic edge to the music making which I find very attractive.”
The Guardian: Surely a disc of the year
Nicholas Kenyon writes: “Transparent fairy wind chords, scuttling high strings, braying portamentos and then the edging in of the final wistful string melody – all are incomparably lovely. (…) Surely a disc of the year.”

Classic FM | Album of the Week
“It’s the sign of an outstanding conductor if he can make you hear familiar music in a different way (…) Ivan Fischer‘s account of the celebrated Overture, composed when Mendelssohn was only 16, is full of delightful touches, like the braying of the asses, which has never before made me smile so much.”

An exceptional album.” BBC Music Magazine: Chamber Choice, Dec 2017: “Even the humblest of cello lines is elevated beyond functionality into something expressive and integral to the overall effect.
