Four Great Composers We Know Too Little
Jakob Ludwig Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy
Join award-winning musicologist Frank Cooper as he explores the life and work of composer Felix Mendelssohn. Using a combination of letters, diary entries, reviews, recorded clips and live musical excerpts, Cooper will take audiences on a journey into the world of the great German composer and conductor. The class offers the perfect accompaniment to the Naples Philharmonic’s Masterworks series, which will feature performances of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto on January 3 and 4 and Symphony No. 4 on May 8 and 9.
