Product description

Review

Professor Todd's imposing tome must surely be the last word on Felix Mendelssohn's life and music. It is a remarkable work of reserch and musical scholarship engagingly written and accessible even to a non-music specialist. (Classic FM, The Magazine)

Professor Todd is our most distinguished authority on Mendelssohn ... His new volume gives not only a remarkably full and detailed picture of Mendelssohn's career, but also a rich and satisfying account of the European culture in which he lived out his short life. (Charles Rosen, Times Literary Supplement)

"A highly readable and authoritative account of a brief but remarkably creative life, and an important contribution to Mendelssohn studies."―Hugh Canning, Sunday Times

About the Author

R. Larry Todd was hailed in The New York Times as "the dean of Mendelssohn scholars in the United States". A Professor of Musicology at Duke University, he has published widely on Mendelssohn and his time, and on nineteenth-century music.
