Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy

 

Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy 1809 - 1847

 

Around 60 years after Johann Sebastian Bach died, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy was born in Hamburg in 1809. He loved the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, and to him and only to him, we owe that the music of Bach was not finally lost. He performed the St. Matthew Passion 101 years after its premiere, after no one had heard it for 80 years. He was a composer, organist and pianist. He died already at the age of 38, also like Bach, in Leipzig.
