Great classical composers have almost always been great romantics - and passionate love affairs are often the inspiration for great music making. Here are some of the most enduring.
Mendelssohn was introduced to Cécile in May 1836. He was immediately struck by her 'most bewitching deep blue eyes.' She was small, strikingly beautiful with a quiet, gracious manner.

She provided encouragement and stability for him for the rest of his life.
