Biography

The brilliant Romantic, Mendelssohn, was a descendant of a great Jewish-German family where intellectual values and morality were firmly placed at the center of any preoccupation. His grandfather, Moses, (1729-1786), an eminent figure in German philosophy, his father Abraham, (1776-1835) a very prosperous banker and his wealthy and cultured mother, Lea, provided the ideal conditions for the very talented young composer to blossom.
