Much of the world regards him as the most gifted musical genius of all time, but few people know Felix Mendelssohn the son, brother, husband, father, adversary, critic and friend. In Felix Mendelssohn: Out of the Depths of His Hear, scholar Helen Martens casts light on these aspects of a life that encompassed the greatest joys and deepest disappointments. Through thousands of solidly researched autograph letters, archival materials, and articles from nineteenth-century journals and newspapers of Mendelssohn's musical life and his remarkable family, readers will discover: What motivated him in his personal life and in his art Where he found fulfillment and what sustained him in difficult times What God and the Bible meant to him What he thought of the process of composing, and which of his compositions satisfied him most and least Why he completed no opera after the age of eighteen How he met the beautiful, aristocratic pianist who moved in and out of his life
