Child prodigy, prolific composer, rediscoverer of Bach’s Passions and star composer in Britain; Felix Mendelssohn achieved a lot during his short life. His elegant, ingenuous and highly melodic music continues to captivate listeners to this day. Containing chamber-musical gems, symphonic works and all-time favourites such as the Violin concerto and the Venetian Gondola song, Mendelssohn Famous Pieces offers a fascinating portrait of the man that Robert Schumann crowned as the “Mozart of the nineteenth century.”
