With compositions and arrangements for string orchestra by Mendelssohns contemporaries Hector Berlioz, Gaetano Donizetti, Niels W. Gade, and Robert Volkmann, as well as a mature work by the young Mendelssohn himself, Peter Bruns and the Mendelssohn Kammerorchester offer a panorama of the nineteenth centurys compositional diversity. They give insight into the sound world that would have been familiar to Mendelssohn, the cosmopolitan.
