Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. 242 x 174 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Companion to Mendelssohn, is written by leading scholars in the field. In fourteen chapters they explore the life, work, and reception of a composer-performer once thought uniquely untroubled in life and art alike, but who is now broadly understood as one of the nineteenth century s most deeply problematic musical figures. The first section of the volume considers issues of biography, with chapters dedicated to Mendelssohn s role in the emergence of Europe s modern musical institutions, to the persistent tensions of his German-Jewish identity, and to his close but enigmatic relationship with his gifted older sister, Fanny. The following nine essays survey Mendelssohn s expansive and multi-faceted musical output, marked as it was by successes in almost every contemporary musical genre outside of opera. The volume s two closing essays confront, in turn, the turbulent course of Mendelssohn s posthumous reception and some of the challenges his music continues to pose for modern performers.
