Felix Mendelssohn was an early Romantic composer.

He wrote [[LohengrinAndMendelssohn one of the two most famous pieces of wedding music ever]], originally as incidental music for a production of ''AMidsummerNightsDream''. Other well-known works include the Hebrides Overture (also known as "Fingal's Cave"), "Spring Song", and the Violin Concerto in E minor.

!!Tropes present in Mendelssohn's life and work:

* AmbiguouslyJewish: Not ambiguous enough for 19th century Germany, though. Yes, Mendelssohn was ethnically Jewish, but he was raised without religion and later became Lutheran. He was still the victim of antisemitism, though.
* ChildProdigy: Gave his first public concert at ''nine years old.''
* LohengrinAndMendelssohn: Half-TropeNamer.
