Product Description & Reviews

The new Decca CD, Mendelssohn Discoveries, contains piano works by Felix Mendelssohn previously unrecorded. Most of these piano works were composed by Mendelssohn during blissful moments in his life - his honeymoon, during times of great financial security; for his sister Fanny's pregnancy and impending birth. No wonder that most newlyweds march down the aisle to Mendelssohn's 'Wedding March' from A Midsummer's Night Dream. One only has to take a deeper look at the composer to understand there was tension and suffering in his work as well. Roberto Prosseda, the Italian pianist featured on Mendelssohn Discoveries, sensed Mendelssohn's darker side. ''I think he suffered a lot behind this apparently quiet life,'' says Prosseda in a recent Wall Street Journal article. ''But he never wanted to show off suffering the way Chopin and Beethoven did, he always tried to keep a certain composure. So when the suffering comes out, it comes out even more dramatically.'' An example of this is the newly-discovered Fantasia in C Minor. Composed at the mere age of 13, Mendelssohn seems to express the intensity and complexity of a much older composer. Decca. 2005.
