About the Album

Mendelssohn’s two concertos for two pianos and orchestra are among the composer’s least well- known and least frequently performed works, and did not appear in print until Karl-Heinz Köhler’s editions were published by Breitkopf in 1960. Felix composed both concertos as birthday presents for his sister Fanny (1805-1847), like her brother, a great keyboard virtuoso. The playful nature of the relationship between the two young siblings (testified in numerous letters) also permeates the close dialogue between the two instruments, with touches of humour and sudden changes of register. Naturally, both concertos contain many bravura passages, intended to show off not only the keyboard skills of the dedicatee, but of Felix himself too.
