[ Sony / RCA Classical Masters / 6 CD Box Set ]

Release Date: Thursday 1 June 2017

A distinguished German conductor is Claus Peter Flor, whose "excellent feel for Mendelssohn's music" was lauded by Gramophone. Collected here in a single box are Flor's acclaimed Bamberg Symphony Orchestra recordings of Mendelssohn's complete symphonies ("affection and intelligence … good traditional polished German playing" - BBC Music Magazine), overtures and Midsummer Night's Dream incidental music ("a charming, musical and lively account … very good sound" - ClassicsToday.com), as well as a neglected masterpiece, the cantata based on Goethe's Die erste Walpurgisnacht.

Nearly eight hours of music.

"Claus Peter Flor's Mendelssohn enjoys the classical virtues of good taste, fine attention to detail, and a real sense of style...these are perfectly respectable and entertaining performances, well recorded. You won't be disappointed." (ClassicsToday)
