The Symphony No. 4 in A major, Op. 90, commonly known as the Italian, is an orchestral symphony written by German composer Felix Mendelssohn. The work has its origins (as had the composer's Scottish 3rd Symphony and The Hebrides overture) in the tour of Europe which occupied Mendelssohn from 1829 to 1831.

Bizet: Symphony in C Major, Mendelssohn: A Midsummer's Night Dream Incidental Music, Smetana: The Moldau (Essential Classics). The Cleveland Orchestra under George Szell was renowned for its chamber orchestra like ensemble and precision and this, combined with such an ebullient performance, carries the day. I can't recall a better recording of the piece and I've been listening and collecting for over fifty years. The selections from A Midsummer Night's Dream are in the same league and, though sadly not complete, cover most of the important selections.
