1/5. As part of the celebrations marking the 200th anniversary of Felix Mendelssohn 's birth, Donald Macleod tells the story of Felix and his sister Fanny, two prodigies whose music had so much in common. But whereas Felix became a leading light in the German musical establishment, Fanny barely stepped outside the private world of the salon. She was often described as the better pianist of the two, but 12-year-old Felix's invitation to play for Goethe marked the first major step in Fanny's exclusion from the limelight.

Berlioz wrote Harold in Italy at the suggestion of Paganini, who ultimately rejected it because the solo viola part was not virtuosic enough. However, the work now seems an ideal portrait of a Romantic hero, just as Tchaikovsky's Pathétique symphony seems to embody a quintessentially
