The World's Greatest Music
Mendelssohn's travels around Scotland inspired some of his best compositions: the Hebrides Overture and the Scottish Symphony. But that didn't mean he liked the 'vulgar' local music he heard...
Mendelssohn carried out more work on his Scottish Symphony while in Italy in 1830-1831, but he said he found it hard to conjure up the "misty mood" of Scotland and put the work on hold. It was not finished until January 1842. Photo: Getty
