His Wedding March is heard as brides walk down the aisle all over the world - but what else is there to know about Felix Mendelssohn?
While still a teenager, Mendelssohn became great friends with composer Ferdinand David - pictured - who was also a fine violinist and for whom Mendelssohn composed his violin concerto. It took him five years, during which time he regularly sought David’s advice. David gave the first performance in 1844. The second was given by the 14 year old Joachim, who would grow up to be Europe’s finest violinist.
