Toscanini's NBC recordings of the last two symphonies of Felix Mendelssohn remain amazing and quite impressive. They were both taken from broadcasts during his final season with the NBC Symphony (1953-54) and, despite the fact he was 86 years old, they have incredible energy. In Toscanini's hands, this 1953 performance is deeply moving and quite dramatic. The scherzo from Mendelssohn's Octet is astonishing because it has an irrepressible energy that rivals the scherzo the composer wrote for "A Midsummer Night's Dream. Toscanini raised some eyebrows by arranging the work for strings; the results are very impressive and really showcase the NBC musicians.

Arturo Toscanini (Italian: ; March 25, 1867 – January 16, 1957) was an Italian conductor. He was one of the most acclaimed musicians of the late 19th and of the 20th century, renowned for his intensity, his perfectionism, his ear for orchestral detail and sonority, and his eidetic memory. He was at various times the music director of La Scala in Milan, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, and the New York Philharmonic.

Mendelssohn - Symphony No. 5 In D Minor, Op. 107 "Reformation": 07] I. Andante: Allegro con fuoco 08] II. Allegro vivace 09] III. Andante 10] IV. Chorale: Ein' feste Burg ist unser Gott. The NBC Symphony Orchestra was one of the world's fabled orchestras.

Mendelssohn: Symphonies Nos. 4 & 5, 2017. Symphony No. 90 "Italian": I. Allegro vivace, 07:35. 90 "Italian": IV. Saltarello. 107 "Reformation": III. Andante, 03:09.

Claudio Abbado interprets Mendelssohn's Fourth with incredible energy, while simultaneously maintaining a real sense of clarity throughout. That goes for both the tone and the structure - a combination which makes the music all the more powerful and effective. Take the final movement, which the conductor and orchestra tear into at full force without ever losing sight of the bigger picture. The result is an enthralling yet concise performance.
