Jakob Ludwig Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, born, and generally known in English speaking countries, as Felix Mendelssohn 3 February 1809 4 November 1847 was a German composer, pianist, organist and conductor of the early Romantic period.A grandson of the philosopher Moses Mendelssohn, Felix Mendelssohn was born into a prominent Jewish family, although initially he was raised without religion and was later baptised as a Lutheran Christian Mendelssohn was recognised early as a musical prodigy, but his parents were cautious and did not seek to capitalise on his talent.Early success in Germany, where he also revived interest in the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, was followed by travel throughout Europe Mendelssohn was particularly well received in Britain as a composer, conductor and soloist, and his ten visits there during which many of his major works were premiered form an important part of his adult career His essentially conservative musical tastes, however, set him apart from many of hisadventurous musical contemporaries such as Franz Liszt, Richard Wagner and Hector Berlioz The Leipzig Conservatoire now the University of Music and Theatre Leipzig , which he founded, became a bastion of this anti radical outlook.Mendelssohn s work includes symphonies, concerti, oratorios, piano music and chamber music His most performed works include his Overture and incidental music for A Midsummer Night s Dream, the Italian Symphony, the Scottish Symphony, the overture The Hebrides, his Violin Concerto, and his String Octet After a long period of relative denigration due to changing musical tastes and anti Semitism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, his creative originality has now been recognised and re evaluated He is now among the most popular composers of the Romantic era.
