After the mystical Hebrides Overture and the masterly Reformation Symphony, Mendelssohn embarked on his second violin concerto. After a long gestation in which he polished the orchestration and meticulously revised the solo part, the work was finally premiered in Leipzig in 1845. Isabelle Faust, accompanied by the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra under Pablo Heras-Casado, offers us a miracle of purity and lyricism in this new interpretation.
