|Composer||Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy|
Who is not familiar at least with a melody from A Midsummer Night's Dream or the Songs without Words? Mendelssohn's romantic style is embodied by a rich sense of inspiration, great delicacy and the sheen of perfection. His style combines a sense of simplicity with a perfectionism which often drove the composer to spend an inordinate amount of time in honing his work after the first burst of inspirational ideas. The result of course speak for themselves.
