Composer: Mendelssohn

Felix Mendelssohn

We will be studying the composer Felix Mendelssohn (and his sister Fanny, too) in the winter term.

We've found some interesting sites:
Classics for Kids
Grooveshark Playlist

And Videos:
   Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64


    Symphony no. 4 in A major, Op. 90


    Octet in E-flat major, Op. 20


    Fingal's Cave ("Hebrides") Overture, Op. 26



Fanny Mendelssohn was the older sister of Felix Mendelssohn.

She was a talented composer and pianist. Fanny composed over 450 pieces. Most of her works were unpublished or published under Felix’s name. One set of works was called "Song Without Words."

This is one piece from the collection.


Wishing you homeschool blessings,
Bethany
