Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)

Grandson of Moses Mendelssohn, the Jewish philosopher, Jakob Ludwig Felix Mendelssohn was a key figure in 19th-century music. A child prodigy, Felix's first major composition was the brilliant Overture to "A Midsummer Night's Dream," at age seventeen. Mendelssohn's five symphonies are characterized by their classicism and refinement. The artist composed two oratorios, chamber music, six organ sonatas, and work for violin and piano.
