Felix Mendelssohn

Felix Mendelssohn, one of music's great prodigies, wrote a dozen chamber symphonies for string orchestra beginning when he was twelve. At fourteen he called it quits.

We begin a series of these short charmers, the String Symphonies,  this week on Mozart's Attic, and we'll continue with one a week until we run out. The kid did OK. See what you think.

Originally from central Massachusetts, Jay has called the Space Coast home for more than 30 years. He began his association with WFIT in the late '90s as a dumpster diver for office furniture in response to a broadcast plea for a new chair from a frustrated disc jockey. (WFIT has come a long way since.)
