Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 2 "Lobgesang". Andrew Litton, a seasoned conductor, leads the Bergen Philharmonic in a confident and self-assured performance of Mendelssohn's Second Symphony, subtitled the "Hymn of Praise," with everything in the right place and moving forward at the proper pace. The orchestra plays with professionalism and dedication, while the assembled multitudes of the Bergen Philharmonic Choir, the KorVest (Bergen Vocal Ensemble), and the Danish National Vocal Ensemble sing with energy and commitment.

Lobgesang (Hymn of Praise), Op. 52 (MWV A 18), is "A Symphony-Cantata on Words of the Holy Bible, for Soloists, Chorus and Orchestra" by Felix Mendelssohn. After the composer's death it was also published as his Symphony No. 2 in B-flat major, a naming and numbering that is not Mendelssohn's. It requires two sopranos and a tenor as soloists, along with a chorus and orchestra. It lasts almost twice as long as any of Mendelssohn's other four symphonies.
