His heart felt swollen in his chest. With his strange, hawking cry and the jangle of the cans the milk-boy went his rounds. 7. No matter how difficult the book was, we read it with pleasure.

Much of the world regards him as the most gifted musical genius of all time, but few people know Felix Medelssohn the son, brother, husband, father, adversary, critic, and friend. In Felix Mendelssohn: Out of the Depths of His Heart, scholar Helen Martens casts light on these aspects of a life that encompassed the greatest joys and deepest disappointments. Through thousands of solidly researched autograph letters, archival materials, and articles from nineteenth-century journals and newspapers of Mendelssohn's musical life and his remarkable family, readers will discover:-What motivated him in his personal life and in his art-Where he found fulfillment and what sustained him in difficult times-What God and the Bible meant to him-What he thought of the process of composing, and which of his compositions satisfied him most and least-Why he completed no opera after the age of eighteen-How he met the beautiful, aristocratic pianist who moved in and out of his life. Music aficionados, history and biography enthusiasts, and every reader who enjoys compelling human drama will marvel over, empathize with, wonder at, and be captivated by Felix Mendelssohn, the story of the sometimes taciturn man whose musical genius revealed the depths of his heart.

A sugar coated story omitting major events in his life.

A much better novel was written by Pierre LA Mure "Beyond desire".

When Felix Mendelssohn died in 1847 aged 38, it marked the close of a life which increasinly was lived in the glare and demands of great fame, public adulation, high honours at home and abroad, especially in Britain, and personal relationships with kings, queens, princes and nobility in general. I don't think it's an exaggeration to suggest he was feted, sometimes hysterically, almost like today's film stars. All of this is on public record. After his death the image of Mendelssohn the private man was carefully "groomed", shall we say, in family memoirs. It was, however, an image which, like the early ones of Jane Austen, was decidedly one dimensional.

One of the latest biographies to be published, "Felix Mendelssohn:Out of the depths of his heart" by Helen Martens, is a wonderfully honest revelation of the whole man; loyal friend, devoted family man, one who lived by high moral, spiritual and philosophical ideals... yes to all this. Thankfully, he was by no means perfect as is revealed in this exhaustively researched, well annotated and well written scholarly work. The wide recourse Martens has had to original letters, journals, newspapers and other archives has resulted in a compelling authenticity which ensured this reader had that deeply satisfying, "not being able to put it down" reading experience. The generous use of the letters especially draws you into the day to day, warts and all life of this complex genius. I closed the book with a profound sense of empathy for the overarching humanity which emanated, truly, "out of the depths of his heart". Highly recommended.
