Felix Mendelssohn and Carl Friedrich Zelter  
Des Madchens Klage - Mendelssohn & Zelter Lieder  
Andrea Folan (soprano); Tom Beghin (fortepiano)  
Carl Friedrich Zelter (1758-1832) was one of the most important formative influences on his young protégé, Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847), exemplified by his handing the young prodigy the responsibility for reviving Bach’s St. Matthew Passion in 1829 – a watershed event. Both Zelter and Mendelssohn added greatly to the Lieder repertoire, setting texts by the great poets of the day. Soprano Andrea Folan and fortepianist Tom Beghin provide a comprehensive view of their world of song.

Mendelssohn Bicentennial 1809-2009

 

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847) was one of the greatest of all the early Romantics. Already composing in early childhood, he created two of his greatest masterpieces at the age of sixteen: the Overture to ďA Midsummer Nightís DreamĒ, and the Octet for strings. A descendant of the great Jewish Enlightenment philosopher, Moses Mendelssohn, Felix, along with his sister Fanny, grew up in a wealthy and cultured household, where his musical and other artistic gifts were nurtured. Mendelssohn was also an avid promoter of the works of Johann Sebastian Bach, and conducted, in 1829, the first performance of the St. Matthew Passion since Bachís time. In honour of Felix Mendelssohnís great contribution to Western music, in collaboration with the Atlantis Ensemble, Musica Omnia has initiated a project to record all of Mendelssohnís chamber music with fortepiano. This series will be completed by 2009 in honour of the two hundredth anniversary of the birth of this towering genius of the nineteenth century.

FELIX MENDELSSOHN

 

THE YOUNG FELIX MENDELSSOHN

 

The Atlantis Ensemble - Jaap Schröder

 

Conventional wisdom has it that Felix Mendelssohn came into his own as a composer at the age of 16 in 1825, with the composition of his string Octet and the Overture to “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. This release, the final volume of the Atlantis Ensemble’s Mendelssohn 2009 project, reveals the lesser-known riches among the works written by young Felix in the years immediately preceding, 1822-1824. Jaap Schröder and his colleagues take us directly into the prosperous Mendelssohn household of the 1820s, a remarkable environment that nurtured young Felix, the prodigy.
