MENDELSSOHN/Munch - - "Scotch Symphony" - RCA 1961? Sealed [Expired]


no longer for sale

"The A minor Symphony, the third of the Mendelssohn series, is familiarly known as the "Scotch," the composer having given it that name is his letters written from Rome in 1832. The first conception of the symphony dates still farther back. In April, 1829, Mendelssohn, then in his twentieth year, paid his first visit to England. After remaining in London two months he went to Scotland, arriving in Edinburgh July 28; the next day he heard a competition of the Highland pipers, which, it may well be imagined, gave him a good idea of the national melodies. The next day he visited Holyrood. He wrote down on the spot the first sixteen bars of the introduction, announcing the theme which not only opens but closes the movements and thus gives an unmistakable clew to its meaning." - Music With Ease.
