Mendelssohn PS

One of the first things that my bright class spotted in terms of difference between the Mendelssohn MS and the final printed version is that he originally had Clarinets in A.

That’s quite significant in terms of timbre of what is at times a texturally exposed work – eg. 2nd subject of the 1st movement.
