Mendelssohn

Audio will be available later today.

At the ripe old age of 15, Felix Mendelssohn already had several works under his belt, including this one — a Double Concerto for Violin, Piano and Strings. It's one of the works that attracted the cultural elite to the Mendelssohn home for Sunday musical soirees. Catherine Leonard and Finghin Collins play Mendelssohn's Concerto in D Minor, with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Nicholas McGegan.
