British interest in Felix Mendelssohn and his music began to grow after his visit to London in 1829, the year he made his debut at the Philharmonic Society with his Symphony in C Minor. Mendelssohn was first mentioned in the British press in articles translated from German journals a few years earlier, and in a few comments on his early publications in the Harmonicon between 1825 and 1827. In contrast to the condescending or niggardly criticism he endured in Germany, Mendelssohn was more than happy to see the open-hearted attitude of English musicians and society. In a letter sent to Eduard Philipp Devrient on October 29, 1829, Mendelssohn noted the difference between musicians in Germany and England.
