I've had this set for over a decade, and over the years I've found more thrilling, dynamic recordings of the Italian and Scottish symphonies (#3 and #4). But as a low-priced introduction to Mendelssohn's symphonies, or for that matter to M.'s music, this set is perfectly adequate. In particular I wish to direct attention to Symphony #2, the infrequently recorded "Lobesang" for chorus and orchestra. The symphony is maybe an hour long and extremely gratifying to the ear, though I have no idea what all the singing is about, as I don't speak or understand German, and the lyrics are not printed in the CD booklet. Still, repeated experimentation has proved that this Masur recording of the "Lobesang" symphony is a foolproof soporific, if one sincerely wishes to doze off, but cannot (for whatever reason). This is not a backhanded criticism, either; I'm utterly serious and very grateful to everyone involved with the recording. If you are seeking music to relax you, look no further.

Kurt Masur's first Mendelssohn Symphony cycle with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra is regarded by many as his best, preferable to the later, digital version he recorded with Teldec. Since I haven't heard the Teldec cycle, I don't know whether this is indeed a valid comparison. Yet this cycle contains some of the most electrifying performances of Mendelssohn's symphonies I've heard, most notably the "Reformation" symphony. The sound quality is decent, not great, but should not be a primary consideration for purchasing this set. Nor should the absence of liner notes. Certainly this inexpensive CD set should be regarded as a primary recommendation for a Mendelssohn symphony cycle.
