The first six volumes in a series about the life and key works of the world's greatest composers. The Victorians dismissed Mendelssohn, but he was the greatest child prodigy in the history of music and an adult genius whose work became even more intense in the troubled years of his life. Conrad Wilson revises his reputation.
`Conrad Wilson's blend of erudition, wit and scrupulous accuracy, laced with racy anecdotal evidence, makes his writing approachable, whichever level of engagement the reader has with "classical" music. These volumes will be invaluable.' -- John Wallace
`I hugely admire Conrad Wilson's writing, and he ably achieves his aim of widening the audience for classical music.' -- Sir Brian McMaster
