    Dunno 'bout you, but I think Mendelsshon had an unparalleled genius at rendering his vivid visual imagination in musical terms over any other composer I can think of.

    If he'd only written pieces evocative of his seagoing experiences, it would have been enough.  But no.  He also gave the world one of my favorite violin concertos, the E-minor, and the delightful Scottish and Italian symphonies. Plus much more.

    All this and fairyland, too.
