The Piano Concerto No. 2 in D minor op. 40 is a major work being published by the Leipzig Mendelssohn Complete Edition and for which the editors are presenting previously unpublished, authentic versions. It was totally unknown until now that in his Piano Concerto No. 2, Mendelssohn intended to allow the possibility of a string-orchestra accompaniment from the very start. This alternative is published for the first time as a separate score in the Complete Edition. In addition, the study version for piano solo, prepared by Mendelssohn himself, is also featured as a first edition.
|1. Allegro appassionato|
