Felix Mendelssohn

February 3, 1809 - November 4, 1847
born in Hamburg, Germany, composed during the Romantic period
Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847) had a life opposite the image of the Romantic ideal. He was well-educated, had very stable home and professional lives, and never had to struggle to be accepted. Even as a teen he was producing lasting classics: the Octet for strings and the Midsummer Night's Dream Overture. Mendelssohn's music reflects a gift for melody and a thorough understanding of form. The 48 Songs Without Words are prime examples of Romantic piano literature, just as the Violin Concerto is a standard of the concerto repertoire. His "Italian" and "Scottish" symphonies and the oratorio Elijah are among his other important works. ~ Patsy Morita, Rovi
