Here in one volume are all of Mendelssohn's major orchestral works in full score: the complete Midsummer Night's Dream — Overture and Incidental Music, plus all the play cues and all the "melodramas" — more than has ever been recorded; The Hebrides Overture, or Fingal's Cave, Op. 26; its pendant, the Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage Overture, Op. 27; Symphony No. 3 in A ("Scottish"), Op. 56; and Symphony No. 4 in A ("Italian"), Op. 90. These are the most performed orchestral works and are usually considered Mendelssohn's finest.
This sturdy edition has been reproduced from selected volumes of the Breitkopt & Härtel Complete Works edition, edited by Julius Rietz. Noteheads are large and clear, and wide margins and ample staves offer space for written notes, analysis, and more.
