The Mendelssohn specialist R. Larry Todd has taken the short score of this piano concerto believed to have its origins in the period directly before Mendelssohnís great E minor Violin Concerto. He has completed the composerís specified orchestration to the extant first two movements and added the scherzo-like 3rd movement of the E minor Violin Concerto with its solo part arranged for the piano like Beethovenís reworking of his Violin Concerto for piano and orchestra. Audiences now have the chance to hear this Ďsisterí work to the famous Violin Concerto combined with the much loved finale of opus 64.
