Felix Mendelssohn was surely the majority triumphant musician of the nineteenth century. His profession demonstrated not any of the disappointments, reverses and impediments that were the law for the another fine Romantic compositors. Without a doubt, it was exactly working too hard and fatigue to satisfy the requirements for his attendance, his compositions, and his plays that led to his premature decease at the age of 38.

Felix Mendelssohn traveedl, guest guided and wrote continually, and in 1837 took on the extra tasks of family life when he wedded Cécile Jeanrenaud. He won a minute interruption from the journalists of his gathered tasks when he took departure of nonattendance from his position at the Gewandhaus throughout the 1844 up to 1845 period. His friend Niels Gade, the Danish compositor and guide who is in generally recognized as the creator of the contemporary school of Scandinavian symphony, was occupied as his substitute.
