The second instalment of Jörg Widmanns involvement with the Irish Chamber Orchestra and their recordings of Felix Mendelssohns symphonies is devoted to what is known as the composers Fifth, in keeping with the upcoming celebrations to mark 500 years since the Reformation. In fact, from a chronological point of view, this is Mendelssohns second symphony. Conceived originally, to mark the celebrations of 300 years since the Reformations Augsburg Confession of 1530, to play the work and the premiere never took place a shocking experience for the then-23- the premiere planned for 1832 seemed to be very promising, since the work was to be played by the benchmark orchestra of the day, the Orchestra of the Paris Conservatoire under the baton of François-Antoine Habeneck.
