Mendelssohn. Concert for pianoforte and orchestra №1

Felix Mendelssohn (1809 - 1847) - German composer and conductor, one of the largest representatives of the romantic trend in music, the author, in particular, the famous wedding march.

"This is Mozart of the nineteenth century, the brightest musical talent that comprehends the contradictions of the era most clearly and best reconciles them."
R. Schumann

"So happy and rich in talents, surrounded by love and admiration and yet so strong in spirit and heart, he never loosened the reins of religious self-discipline, never transcended the limits of modesty and humility, never ceased to be guided by a sense of duty. The earth did not fail him in any of his joys, the heavens rewarded him with all the gifts for a rich spiritual life. In comparison with such an abundance of peaceful joys, what importance could a watch of bad mood, days of sadness or mournful displeasure with false honors that had been given to him! Sudden death among the works that he started and far-reaching projects, rid him of fears and worldly vanities, completed this brilliant life of a man who was truly happy and endowed with happiness to others. "
