4.0 out of 5 stars Appropriately massive March 25, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Mendelssohn wanted the music to be grand, nay, grandiose, and may have used no less than Beethoven's Ninth Symphony as his model. Certainly, the present disc from Jun Markl and company catches much of that momentous quality the composer was striving to realize.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mendelssohn's Neglected Stepchild January 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Strangely, or perhaps not so strangely, in a lifetime of concert-going I've never heard Mendelssohn's Second Symphony, 'Lobgesang' ('Song of Praise') although I have participated in a choral performance of the 'Nun danket alle Gott' portion by itself. In fact, until this recording I've never owned a performance of it on disc. I've been living with the piece, and the recording, for a couple of weeks now and am bound to say that it is an impressive albeit at times maddening piece.

First, a little background. The work was written in 1840 as part of the musical celebration of the 400th anniversary of Gutenberg's invention of movable type. (Fun fact: For the same celebration Mendelssohn, in the 'Festgesang', wrote the tune that became, in English, 'Hark, the Herald Angels Sing' .) The layout of the 'Lobgesang' symphony is similar to that of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, namely three instrumental movements followed by a choral movement (or in this case nine connected movements). Mendelssohn himself called the work a 'symphony-cantata'. Fittingly, and not surprisingly, Mendelssohn chose passages from Luther's German translation of the Bible for his text. Luther's Bible was surely one of the most printed texts in the century following Gutenberg's invention. I leave for someone else the job of explicating those texts. Suffice it to say that they are more or less unconnected passages that meditate on faith, praise, and despair. Although called Mendelssohn's Second Symphony it was actually the fourth that he wrote. He had already written the Italian (No. 4) but had held it unperformed for further revision. And he'd also written the 'Reformation' Symphony (No. 5) but felt it was a failure and it, too, had not yet been performed.

The three instrumental movements are played without pause.
