Mendelssohn is one of the worlds best-loved composers. His greatest music The Hebrides, the Violin Concerto, the Italian Symphony is a cornerstone of the classical repertoire, while the Wedding March from his incidental music to A Midsummer Nights Dream has been the soundtrack to the happiest moments of millions of lives. The most astonishing child genius in the history of music, Mendelssohn was also an international celebrity, his company sought by the leading figures of his time, from Goethe to Queen Victoria. Widely regarded, in the last years of his tragically short life, as the worlds greatest living composer, Mendelssohn has survived the assaults of such powerful detractors as Wagner, George Bernard Shaw and the cultural ideologues of Nazi Germany to remain, today as for his contemporaries, the creator of some of the freshest and most inspiring music ever written.
