    Default Mendelssohn's solo piano works and recordings

    Mendelssohn's solo piano works seem to be a bit lacking in the recorded repertoire. I may be ignorant of the material on LP. In any case, I am aware of the following:

    Naxos/Benjamin Frith
    Nimbus/Martin Jones
    Hyperion/Howard Shelly

    Anyone aware of whether Murray Perahia released a set (complete of incomplete)? It would be nice to have this sort of talent on a "high-rez" audio medium...

    I'm just aware of this, as regards Perahia

    There's also a very old Vox LP set of all the piano music, played by Kyriakou.



    Single works have been recorded by many, such as
    Horowitz https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwxCB2kuwrM
    Richter https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9qEIcgSXLU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0f0laEW2ew

    Howard Shelley made four discs I believe, highly recommend.

    Some are avail as high-rez downloads as well. I will get around to Vol. 1 soon.

    The 80s CD (which contains both PCs from 1974) contains some solo stuff. I think Perahia nails it with FM...
