Mendelssohn Piano Concerto No. 2, Op. 40
on: September 22, 2020, 09:12:37 PM
I performed the Mendelssohn Piano Concerto No. 2, Op. 40 with the UC Davis Symphony Orchestra on May 5, 1971 (almost 50 years ago). Unlike Mendelssohn’s first piano concerto in G minor, there is no live “orchestra only” recording available from the usual sites (Music Minus One, Tomplay, Smart Soloist, etc.). Therefore, I created the orchestra part by hand-entering the whole orchestra score into Sibelius Notation software (my first time doing this, approximately 100 hours of work) and rendering it with Noteperformer 3.
