Felix Mendelssohn (Wikimedia Commons)

Two hundred years ago today, February 3rd, 1809, Abraham and Lea Mendelssohn welcomed a baby boy who would eventually produce, introduce and reintroduce the world to his and other composers’ (notably JS Bach’s) elegant and inventive music.

Many of Felix Mendelssohn’s greatest compositions have never been published, but thanks to the work of an organization called The Mendelssohn Project, some of these lost compositions are now coming to light and to the concert hall.
