Review: An evening of Mendelssohn and Schumann with the Seattle Symphony and Gidon Kremer

“Against the comparatively subdued palette of the String Symphony, Mendelssohn’s Symphony no. 4 sounded like a Technicolor outburst – effected not by orchestral extravagance but by Mendelssohn’s imaginative use of standard means. Morlot understands this Mendelssohnian economy and brought out a variety of ingratiating details, such as Emil Khudyev’s radiant clarinet or the change of step in the walking-bass of the Andante con moto, which was taken at a very deliberate pace.”
