Written in 1823, this magical 'Double' Concerto was composed in three-movement form (Allegro-Adagio-Allegro molto) and represents an unusual concerto pairing. It is pure Mendelssohn at his best! The central Adagio movement is the wonderful "Song Without Words." Features many solo passages for each soloist, to beautiful effect. Not to be missed!
This book includes an authoritative performance edition of the score for solo Violin, edited by Mario Hossen and newly engraved and printed on high-quality ivory paper.
The accompanying CD contains high-quality recordings of the Piano and String Orchestra parts, so that you can play along as the violinist, as if you had accompaniment. What's more, the recording can be played at two different tempi, one at the normal tempo and one at a slower tempo making this perfect for someone new to the 'Double' Concerto.
