Description
Greek-born conductor Dimitri Mitropoulos (1896–1960) became an American citizen in 1946, conducting the Minneapolis Symphony and later the New York Philharmonic. One of the last performances he led was this exuberant rendition of Felix Mendelssohn's third symphony ("Scottish") from October 24, 1960. From three years earlier is Mendelssohn's Symphony no. 5 ("Reformation"), and from 1954 comes a performance of Darius Milhaud's transcription of two movements from François Couperin's "La Sultane" sonata—one of them exceedingly lyrical and the other a peppy "hornpipe."

"Mendelssohn's 'Reformation' Symphony, a much-underrated work, here given with benediction, grandeur of expression, rough-hewn timbres, thrilling impetus and, maybe surprisingly amidst such high-octane music-making, a graceful and affectionate … play-through of the delicious Allegro vivace second movement, the 'trio' beguilingly shaped and decorated."—Classical Source
