Mendelssohn: Die erste Walpurgisnacht

This collection of lesser-known works from Kurt Masur’s famed tenure at the head of Mendelssohn’s own orchestra in Leipzig is an essential companion to the Brilliant Classics Wolfgang Sawallisch set of the composer’s complete symphonies (BC93777). • The main work is the secular cantata Die erste Walpurgisnacht, which rides on the early-Romantic wave of popularity for Gothic horror and drama, setting a text by Goethe that tells of a May-Day conflict between Christians and Druids. • “… clarity and precision… excellent soloists and superb Leipzig Radio Chorus…” (Gramophone, 1995)
