It’s Mendelssohn’s birthday! Let’s celebrate!

February is Mendelssohn’s birthday month, and it’s also the month of Valentine’s Day.  Felix wrote the Andante and Rondo Capriccioso for a girl he was smitten with, and his 2nd String Quartet is based on a gorgeous love song, «Ist es wahr?» (‘Is it true?’)!
