First Mondays at Jordan Hall: Mendelssohn
This season, First Mondays explore connections and friendships between composers and musicians who inspired each other.
Felix Mendelssohn, one of history’s truly great musical prodigies, had already established his importance by the age of 16 with the Octet for Strings. His chamber works flowed forth through the rest of his short life. Equally important to the world was his role in the revival of the music of J.S. Bach. His Berlin performance in 1829 of the St. Matthew Passion rekindled the reputation of an almost forgotten giant. This program interweaves his chamber music with works by Bach that he performed.View more
