F. Mendelssohn (1829) "Fingal's Cave" (Die Hebriden Op.26) BOSTON
F. Mendelssohn (1829) "Fingal's Cave" (Die Hebriden Op.26) BOSTON THANK GOD FOR WARNER BROTHERS CARTOONS. THAT IS WHERE I FIRST HEARD THIS PIECE AS A CHILD!!!!-:) Fingal's Cave is a sea cave on the uninhabited island of Staffa, in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, part of a National Nature Reserve owned by the National Trust for Scotland. It is formed entirely from hexagonally jointed basalt columns, similar in structure to (and part of the same ancient lava flow as) the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland and those of nearby Ulva. In both cases, the cooling surface of the mass of hot lava cracked in a hexagonal pattern in a similar way to drying mud cracking as it shrinks, and these cracks gradually extended down into the mass of lava as it cooled and shrank to form the columns, which were subsequently exposed by erosion. The cave was brought to the attention of the English-speaking world by 18th-century naturalist Sir Joseph Banks in 1772.It became known as Fingal's Cave after the eponymous hero of an epic poem by 18th-century Scots poet-historian James Macpherson. Romantic composer Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy visited in 1829 and wrote Die Hebriden (in English, Hebrides Overture Opus 26, commonly known as Fingal's Cave overture), inspired by the weird echoes in the cave. Mendelssohn's overture popularized the cave as a tourist destination. Other famous 19th-century visitors included author Jules Verne; poets William Wordsworth, John Keats, and Alfred, Lord Tennyson; and Romantic artist JMW Turner, who painted "Staffa, Fingal's Cave" in ...

Mendelssohn :Symphony No.4 in A, 'Italian', 1st movement
Mendelssohn :Symphony No.4 in A, 'Italian', 1st movement Title : Felix Mendelssohn :Symphony No.4 in A, 'Italian', 1st movement Date : 1838 From Wikipedia ,The Symphony No. 4 in A major, Op. 90, commonly known as the Italian, is an orchestral symphony written by German composer Felix Mendelssohn. The work has its origins, like the composer's Scottish Symphony and the orchestral overture The Hebrides (Fingal's Cave), in the tour of Europe which occupied Mendelssohn from 1829 to 1831. Its inspiration is the colour and atmosphere of Italy. The Italian Symphony was completed in 1833, and was first performed in London at a Royal Philharmonic Society concert. However, Mendelssohn remained unsatisfied with the composition and even wrote an alternate version of the second, third, and fourth movements. He never published the symphony, which only appeared in print after his death. The piece is scored for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani and strings. It is in four movements: Allegro vivace Andante con moto Con moto moderato Saltarello: Presto The joyful first movement, in sonata form, is followed by an impression in D minor of a religious procession the composer witnessed in Naples. The third movement is a minuet and trio, while the final movement (which is in the minor key throughout) incorporates dance figurations from the Roman saltarello and the Neapolitan tarantella. A typical performance lasts about half an hour.

Mendelssohn: Song Without Words, op. 19 no. 1
Mendelssohn: Song Without Words, op. 19 no. 1 Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847) was a pianist, organist, and composer who belongs to the "first generation" of 19th-century romantic composers (along with Berlioz, Chopin, Schumann, and Liszt). Mendelssohn's music was unique among composers of his era in that it was more rooted in classical traditions than the music of his contemporaries--in other words, he was more a classical composer living in the romantic era rather than a purely romantic composer (like Schumann, for example). Mendelssohn's music is marked by grace, elegance, and beautiful melodies.
