Felix Mendelssohn cannot complain about his childhood: at seven he took piano lessons from Marie Bigot (whose piano technique was remarked on by Haydn and Beethoven), he played chamber music with Pierre Baillot, later concertmaster of the Paris Opera, in his early teens he composed piano, chamber and church choral works, at the age of 12 a private orchestra gave a recital of his first Singspiel, and by 16 his first chamber work was ready. In other words, he had everything, including genius, needed to make himself a name in music history. Among his chamber works, the Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor is considered remarkable and his final quartet, the eerie String Quartet in F minor very unusual. Furthermore, he did not ignore song, a genre raised to great heights since Schubert, although Mendelssohn reached back to the northern German tradition instead of the Schubertian path, in which the piano is a restrained accompanist to the poem. Works are played by the Chamber Circle made up of current and former students of the Liszt Academy.

The concert is followed by CODA – which is an informal conversation with the performers.
