Description: Some rare solo and four-hands Mendelssohn here, with what appears to be the only currently available recording of the Op. 92 with its original Andante introduction (there are also some variations here from the version known simply as "Allegro vivace Op. 92"), which was only published in 1994. The rarely heard Preludes and Fugues of 1831-37 combine Songs Without Words-like melody with Bachian counterpoint and outright references to Bach keyboard works. Mi-Joo Lee (piano), Klaus Hellwig (four hands pieces). SACD hybrid
