Felix Mendelssohn-Bartoldy--Part 12

Lessons From Mendelssohn's Life

Resuming, we find in Mendelssohn's career the following salient points:

  1. The great opportunities offered to him by the unlimited wealth of his parents, especially the eminent teachers in all branches of knowledge, to whom his education was entrusted.

  2. The intimate association with the most prominent men of his time and the preference he gave in choosing his friends to older, more experienced men, from whom he could gain enlightenment and inspiration.

  3. His insatiable longing for knowledge and his indefatigable study of the classics, especially Bach and Beethoven.

  4. His exceptional culture and his refined manner, which made him a welcome and desired guest in the highest social circles.

  5. The integrity of his character and the high moral standard he followed all his life, partly a result of the liberal and careful education given him by his parents.
