Ο Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy γεννήθηκε σαν σήμερα, 3 Φεβρουαρίου του 1809. Υπήρξε μια από τις πιο εντυπωσιακές περιπτώσεις παιδιού-θαύματος όλων των εποχών, αντίστοιχη εκείνης του Mozart. Μεταξύ 12 και 14 χρόνων συνέθεσε, μεταξύ άλλων, 12 συμφωνίες για ορχήστρα εγχόρδων. Ακούμε το μενουέτο της έβδομης από αυτές, από την Hannover Band σε όργανα εποχής. Διευθύνει ο Roy Goodman.

Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy was born on this date, February 3, 1809. He was one of the most remarkable cases of child-prodigy of all time, similar to that of Mozart. Between 12 and 14 years old, he composed 12 symphonies for string orchestra. We hear the Menuetto of the seventh. The Hannover Band, dir. by Roy Goodman, performs on period instruments.

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
