Young Mendelssohn

Audio will be available later today.

Genius manifested itself early in Felix Mendelssohn. His oddball Sextet in D, op. 110 for violin, two violas, cello, bass and piano was a work he wrote at age 15. It's played by some folks at least twice his age, at Seattle's Summer Festival.
