Publisher's Summary

Felix Mendelssohn grew up in an extraordinary family, one distinguished by both worldly success and intellectual achievement. Mendelssohn was, in fact, the greatest child prodigy that music has known, undoubtedly helped by the early nurturing his talent received. Not even Mozart created such mature compositions at so early an age.

Mendelssohn lived and composed during the Romantic era, yet his music reflects more influence from the Classical and pre-Classical tradition. His music reveals a blend of Classical form with Romantic content, which made itself felt in the form of poetic melodies, highly expressive harmonies, and original instrumental textures.

The Musically Speaking Conductor's Guides are your link to an appreciation of the greatest classical music ever performed. Let Maestro Gerard Schwarz enrich your classical music listening enjoyment by illuminating the great works of the Masters with revealing commentary and educational insight.
