Symphony in C-Major - from fragments of Mendelssohns 6th symphony

Because I want to present the symphony as a whole I open a new thread:

The first movement based on the 2 minutes complete score and further sketches by Mendelssohn 


and  based on these sketches  

II. Andante cantabile

0:00   Andante cantabile   main part, melody and bass line sketch by Mendelssohn
2:55   Andante con moto
4:59   3 variations on the main theme
7:11   Reprise
10:00 Coda, final variation of main theme 

I am curious about your impressions ... what would you have done with the Andante sketches?

The second movement is Magnificent. Beautiful orchestration. Keeping with the Mendelssohn style. 

Thank you for sharing! This is concert worthy and it should be performed!
