#71 The Smell of Rush

Lively and brilliant strings are pushing on, and even in slower or soften moments (3'11'') you can feel how nervous they are. The essential rush is never ending: dance me tonight, dance me to the end of life!

Abbado loosens the reins and let's the music flow. LSO plays boldly and zestfully, there are no limits. A very warming recording.

Composer: Felix Mendelssohn
Work: Symphony No 4, IV. Saltarello. Presto
Recording: London Symphony Orchestra, Claudio Abbado
