A Portrait of Mendelssohn

Yale University Press

Aside from Charles Edward Horsley, Felix Mendessohn was also approached by Emil Naumann's parents to supervise directly their son's studies. At that time, however, Naumann was only twelve years old, and Mendelssohn showed his concern not only for the child's musical education but also for his overall development. As in Horsley's case, Mendelssohn suggested that Naumann should first undergo a course of instruction with Moritz Hauptmann before taking more advanced studies in composition under him. Hence, Naumann came to Leipzig in the autumn of 1842 to study with Hauptmann before receiving tuition from Mendelssohn the following year at the Leipzig Conservatorium.
