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 schoenen 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).
