Mendelssohn Set the Standard for Musical Prodigies

- With all due respect to Mozart, Mendelssohn set the standard for musical prodigies. For all Mozart’s talents, he was a young man before he truly discovered a compositional voice that was uniquely his own, while Mendelssohn showed signs of a composer mature beyond his years at age 15 with his First Symphony (1824), a remarkably clever work for such a young mind. However, it was his String Octet, composed a year later, that revealed the full extent of his genius. As Mendelssohn’s acclaim as a prodigy grew, he came to meet an elderly Goethe who, having also heard a young Mozart play in 1763, was so impressed that he declared that Mendelssohn “bears the same relation to the little Mozart that th...   [tags: music composition geniuses]

Henry David Thoreau and Romanticism

- Romanticism is an effect that emanated from the historic concept of Enlightenment, an idea that largely focused on logic and order. During the Romantic era, emphasis was laid on emotion, imagination, and intuition as the main features of writing. Most literatures during the time were sentimental in their content and written to try to transcend reality. Romanticism disregards civilization and instead attaches much significance to the common man, individualism, and most importantly, nature.
