Mendelssohn: String Symphonies, Vol. 2
L'Orfeo Barockorchester; Gaigg, Michi
For two decades now the L’Orfeo Barockorchester ranges among the most prominent players on the Early Music stage. According to the Neue Zürcher Zeitung the international ensemble, directed by its founder Michi Gaigg, boasts uniqueness which sets it apart from any globalized uniformity. This quality is based on widely diverse musical synergies. A spirited approach, a sense of continuity, healthy dynamics in the ensemble and an inquisitive nature are the ingredients for Michi Gaigg’s recipe. Against this background she creates her own colorful, sensual, temperamental and unmistakable handwriting. This album is the second release in the ensemble’s exploration of the String Symphonies of Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy. The first volume was previously released to stunning reviews.
