Violinist Frank Michael Erben joins the Gewandhaus Orchestra Leipzig under Kurt Masur in a recording made in May 1997. Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy (1809-1847) was the orchestra's first conductor and the Gewandhaus Orchestra - proud of its long history - is an appropriate choice for an introduction to a work by the composer. With his famous Violin Concerto in E minor, Mendelssohn forged a link between Classicism and Romanticism. Frank Michael Erben and musicologist Armin Koch reveal how he combined the best of both worlds to create a virtuoso masterpiece that remains a popular favorite with audiences until today.
