Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy (1809-1847) was a famous German composer, pianist, conductor and teacher of the Romantic period.

His works encompass various genres, including symphonies, concertos, chamber music, and oratorios. Mendelssohn’s notable compositions include his “Violin Concerto in E Minor,” the evocative “Wedding March” from his incidental music for Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” and his masterful symphonies, such as the vibrant “Italian Symphony.” His contributions extended beyond composition, as Mendelssohn played a significant role in reviving the works of Johann Sebastian Bach and establishing modern performance practices for his music. Mendelssohn’s enduring legacy continues to captivate audiences with its beauty, passion, and profound musical expression.
