Description: The early (1820) piano trio is otherwise unavailable on disc. Needless to say, the 11-year-old Mendelssohn's 13-minute work leaves many adult composers of the period in the shade (think of his string symphonies). Another rarity, the little "albumleaf" was written for fellow composer Rietz in 1843. Alte Musik Köln, Tobias Koch (fortepiano). SACD hybrid.
