Felix Mendelssohn: Violin Concerto in D Minor
Everyone loves Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E minor. But what about this excellent violin concerto, which Yehudi Menuhin resurrected after the piece had lain dormant for 130 years? Word has it the piece was passed down through generations of Mendelssohns, barely noticed, until a rare books dealer took interest in the manuscript and showed his violinist friend. The rest is history: now this electrifying concerto is beloved in classical circles!
