Mendelssohn complained that this symphony cost him some of the bitterest moments in his life, yet it is one of his finest works. We may ' safely conclude', says Sir Donald Tovey , ' that - Mendelssohn's own dissatisfaction with the " Italian " Symphony is rather an objection to the laws of human growth than the recognition of defects that self-criticism and revision can remedy. Certainly in the first three movements every bar and every note is in the right place, except for one tiny oversight in the slow movement. '. : . As to the finale, no defect is discoverable ; but we can imagine that Mendelssohn could have wished to broaden its design towards the end.'
