    I'm not too familiar with his chamber works but if you want to expand a little, his Masses and liturgically based works are AMAZING!!

    check out the string symphonies, very enjoyable
    I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.

    Mendelssohn: (was one of Queen Victoria's favourite composers).

    You should like these works:

    • Chamber music: Trio for Piano and Strings No. 1 in D minor; Octet for Strings in E flat major; Cello & Piano sonata No. 1 in B Fl Maj
    • Symphony: 3, 4, 5
    • Violin Con in E Minor
    • Piano Con 1 in G Minor
    • Midsummer Night's Dream theme music
    • Hebrides Overture (Fingals Cave)


    My favourite is Symphony 5 (Reformation).

    ...and all his quartets and quintets for strings. Not forget his violin and viola sonatas. And
    his early violin concerto. But, without doubt, his master chamber piece is his string octet, one of the most important chamber works of the 19th.century.
