BiographyMendelssohn, a musical prodigy, came to prominence in his native Germany before he officially began to study music. He became one of the nineteenth century's biggest composers with his "Violin Concierto" and "A Midsummer's Night Dream" (which contains the evergreen "Wedding March"). A master of symphonic structure, Mendelssohn became a major public figure in Great Britain and spent considerable energy reacquainting the public with Bach's work.
