Mendelssohn - 200 years 

February 3, 2009 is the 200 th anniversary of the birth of the great Romantic period composer, Felix Mendelssohn, so there will be a lot of celebratory concerts around the world.

A much travelled composer, he was born in Hamburg, Germany and people are often familiar with pieces of his work, without knowing what they are called or who composed them. Popular pieces like his E minor Violin Concerto and Italian Symphony, the Hebrides Overture and the ever popular Wedding March.
