Felix Mendelssohn

One of the most astonishingly gifted prodigies of the Romantic era, Felix Mendelssohn was a brilliant composer and pianist by his early teens. His dazzling Sextet was composed for an unusual combination of instruments when he was only fifteen! You’ll hear it performed on our world-class Graf piano from the time, along with his ravishingly romantic Trio in D Minor, composed later at the height of his expressive power.
