Having begun their collaboration in 1997, the Swedish Chamber Orchestra and its conductor laureate Thomas Dausgaard have developed an unusually tight partnership. Nowhere is this demonstrated more clearly than in their cycles of the symphonies of Schumann, Schubert, and Brahms – performances which have been characterized by reviewers as variously “fresh,” “vivid,” and “transparent.” Of Mendelssohn, the team has previously recorded the incidental music to A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Now, they return to Mendelssohn with an album of his First and Third Symphonies.
