James Ehnes and the Philharmonia join forces again after the Gramophone Award-winning Elgar concerto recording (ONYX 4025), this time with Vladimir Ashkenazy conducting in Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto. The sparkling and precocious Octet, written when the composer was just 16 years old, is another of Mendelssohn's best known works.
