Medium: 2 CD 
Release Date: 26.03.2010

This is one of the most important double-CD sets to be issued of the conducting genius of Arturo Toscanini, for it brings together virtually every single work by Mendelssohn he ever conducted in the USA. We have the last three symphonies- the Scotch, Italian and Reformation, plus the Violin Concerto with Jascha Heifetz (they never recorded it commercially) and three Overtures together with the Midsummer Night's Dream music. This is also the only recording of Toscanini conducting the Scotch - the only performance he ever gave in the USA - and the only recording of him conducting the Italian in which he makes the important first movement repeat. This is a unique release, commemorating also the Mendelssohn bicentenary, which will be widely welcomed by all collectors.
