Augustin Dumay returns to the Mendelssohn E minor concerto after a gap of over 30 years since his first and only recording of the work for EMI. On this new version he directs the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra in a refreshing new look at this ever-popular masterpiece. The rest of the program comprises the late violin sonata in F, which the composer worked on at the same time as the violin concerto, but left unpublished. The program is completed by a selection of Songs without Words arranged for violin and piano by David Walter. He is accompanied by pianist Jonathan Fournel, who recently won the prestigious Queen Elisabeth Competition and has been studying with Louis Lortie since 2016.
