Mendelssohn: Songs & Duets, Volume 5

Gentle, beautiful snapshots of Mendelssohn are presented on this new colume of his vocal repertoire. Eugene Asti is the accompanist for each of the singers, and is simply astonishing. Everything that comes to mind when you think of Mendelssohn - gentle parlour concerts for a gentle society, backed up with a pure dash of genius - is shown in every song. With musicianship and control to be envied, the vocalists are striking in their understanding and presentatino of each of the miniature musical works.
