Leipzig Edition of the Works of Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy
Series I (Orchestral Works) - Vol. 8B: Overtures (Arrangements for Piano) - ed. by Christin Martin Schmidt
It is significant that the highly self-critical Mendelssohn could envision – if at all – only four-hand piano arrangements of his Concert Overtures nos. 2, 3 and 4. He made it clear to the publisher Breitkopf & Härtel that a two-hand version would "find no admirers." Since Mendelssohn made his own arrangements of the "Hebrides" Overture (op. 26) and the Overture "zur schönen Melusine" (op. 32), this gives the Leipzig Mendelssohn Complete Edition the opportunity to bring out a slender supplementary volume to the orchestral scores of the four Concert Overtures (LMA I/8), which Christian Martin Schmidt edited back in 2006.
