An Early Evening Stroll

In ‘An Early Evening Stroll’, we delve further into the unsuspected rich reservoir of Mendelssohn’s youthful works.

At 12, he was already conducting an ensemble hired by his father with a string symphony of his own. And two years later, he composed a concerto for two pianos for his sister Fanny and himself. And on holiday in Bad Doberan on the Baltic Sea, he created a catchy piece for the local brass band.
