The Price of Assimilation: Felix Mendelssohn and the by Jeffrey S. Sposato

By Jeffrey S. Sposato

Such a lot students in view that international struggle have assumed that composer Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809-1847) maintained a robust attachment to Judaism all through his lifetime.

With the dying of Mendelssohn's father and the close to simultaneous institution of the composer's profession in Leipzig in 1835, even though, Mendelssohn's worry of his history started to burn up, and he started to discover ways that he might end up the sincerity of his religion with no need to publicly disparage his Jewish background.

Reynolds exhibits that the stylistic advances that either composers made in Dresden in 1845–46 stemmed from a deepened figuring out of Beethoven’s strategies and methods within the 9th Symphony. The facts supplied via their compositions from this pivotal 12 months and the encompassing years means that they mentioned Beethoven’s 9th with one another within the months major as much as the functionality of this paintings, which Wagner carried out on Palm Sunday in 1846. fundamental points that seem to have them either are Beethoven’s use of counterpoint related to opposite movement and his slow improvement of the “Ode to pleasure” melody throughout the previous hobbies. Combining a unique exam of the historic list with cautious readings of the song, Reynolds provides additional layers to this argument, speculating that Wagner and Schumann would possibly not have come to those discoveries solely independently of one another. the path of affects that Reynolds explores extends again to the tune of Bach and forward to Tristan and Isolde, in addition to to Brahms’s First Symphony.
