The Friday OT: Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E Minor (Opus 64)

I got reminded of this piece by twitterpal sez me man earlier in the week. One of those moments when just one semi-random comment from one person will zoom you back into your past, way back when I lost count of the number of times I listened to this on an old cassette Walkman. This version has Hilary Hahn on lead fiddle with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra behind and is an intense experience, especially the famous last movement.
