Felix Mendelssohn was an excellent pianist and could have been a leading soloist. His financial independence allowed him to dedicate himself to composing, however, and the importance of his works in the history of musical Romanticism is beyond question. The Fantasy on ‘The Last Rose of Summer’ has the nature of a dreamy Irish ballad, while the Trois Fantaisies ou Caprices was considered by Mendelssohn to be ‘three of my best piano pieces’. The blend of the tradition of Bach and technical complexity in the Variations sérieuses is one of the composer’s most admired works for piano, rounding out an album of repertoire that reveals some of the most original characteristics of Mendelssohn’s art.
