A Portrait of Mendelssohn

Yale University Press

Felix Mendelssohn's oratorio St Paul remained successful in the years following its premiere, especially in the early 1840s. It consolidated his stature as one of the greatest composers of the age. In Europe and North America, his reputation soared dramatically among the musical public during this period, as evidenced by published reviews and assessments. In the Teutonic world in general, and Germany in particular, Mendelssohn was regarded as the undisputed leader among German composers. This chapter also focuses on the reception of Mendelssohn's music in other countries between 1836 and 1847, including Austria, Russia, France, Italy, and the Iberian Peninsula.
