M-LT 71337 - The Music of Mendelssohn
The works of Mendelssohn, at once strikingly original and grounded in the musical past, cover a wide range of genres and styles, and were conceived and performed in particular cultural contexts—some written for British audiences and sensibilities, others for German ones. Understanding contemporary German cultural nationalism and the importance of Scottish and “Ossianic” influences for both the United Kingdom and Germany can help to illuminate some of Mendelssohn’s meanings. Very well­known works such as the oratorio Elijah , the Songs without Words, the Violin Concerto, octet, quartets and symphonies, will be studied together with lesser­known ones such as Die erste Walpurgisnacht and On Lena’s Gloomy Heath.
