Hi Luis,
I listend to all of these and they are all very nicely played. It is difficult not to be attracted to no.2 with it's uniquely Mendelssohnian features. I enjoyed them all. Thanks for the hard work and contribution.

I have to admit that Mendelssohn is not a favorite of mine, although I've played many of his Songs without Words. I don't think he was in the same league as Chopin, Schumann and Liszt. I find his music a bit too syrupy, and it often strikes me as superficial and predictable.

Thanks for listening, David!

I'd say that Mendelssohn's music should be faced in an extroverted and light manner. If you get this mood, you'll enjoy his works.
But then I have recently listened to some boring Mendelssohn's pieces which made me change my mind... :cry:
