    Three years before the Midsummer Night’s Dream Overture, Felix Mendelssohn wrote this amazing Concerto for (forte)piano and violin, built on the Classical model but brimming with new, even iconoclastic ideas. And yet, when it had its first performance in May 1823, the composer was aged just fourteen! But he had already written around one hundred works, including a Piano Concerto premiered a year
    earlier. It was not until the late 20th century that they appeared in a critical edition, on which this recording is based.
