Here is the proof that less is more. Visited a Sunday with a Music Salon Consert that was exquisite. A MUST is the the room where you can learn ( and understand ) so much more about conducting. A great place and I will sure be back!

I was visiting Leipzig and decided to walk to the Mendelssohn House for the museum and the concert from the Hbf. I'm so pleased I did. The highlights for me: 1. The concert, The Lee Trio. (They're on Facebook). An Audible feast! The museum, room 6 that allows you to conduct and the English audio wand that helped me get... More

This is where Mendelssohn lived the last 12 years of his short life. Aside from the original rooms themselves, you can listen to some of his music in good quality audio and see a collection of personal artifacts. Historical overview of the Mendelssohns' lives, especially of the life of the workaholic Felix. Also open on Mondays.

Despite Nazi attempts to wipe out any trace of Mendelssohn,his house is there and open as a fine museum. Well, better than a museum, it has a real feeling of being a home. Lots of interesting exhibits

This museum on the life and music of Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy incorporates the story of his personal life and musical career, as well listening to his music. It is all laid out in a relaxing and calm environment - the house where he and his family once lived - and gives one an excellent insight into his life. Outside is... More
