LSO Live presents Sir John Eliot Gardiner's award-winning Mendelssohn series together in its entirety for the first time. Captured over three seasons during critically-acclaimed concerts in the Barbican Hall, this box set offers listeners the definitive account of Gardiner's unique take on Mendelssohn with the London Symphony Orchestra: a blend between the conductor's wide-ranging expertise and the Orchestra's signature sound. Reflecting on this exploration of the great German composer with the LSO, Gardiner said: 'My admiration for Mendelssohn has gone up enormously as a result of this project... It's so rewarding working with this group of players; they're willing to go to the last nth degree, in terms of phrasing and articulation, and that's a joy.'
