A Portrait of Mendelssohn

Clive Brown

Yale University Press

Although Felix Mendelssohn was committed to the Leipzig Conservatorium after its establishment in 1843, he did not necessarily consider it appropriate for the education of all aspiring musicians. One student who came to his attention that year was the exceptionally talented twelve-year-old violinist Joseph Joachim. In his authorized biography of Joachim, which appeared in 1901, Andreas Moser describes the relationship between the boy and his teacher based on Joachim's own recollections.
