Sorry... I was a little confused about one of the posts.


Okay, I'll try and narrow the composer down here.

Was the composer related to Fanny Mendelssohn?

Wow, when I said I wanted intelligent questions, I didn't know what I was getting into  :-[ :-[
Ehem, I don't think there was any relation. However, there are certain attributes that are shared between Fanny Mendelssohn and the mystery composer, but one can find such shared attributes between pretty much any two people.

No, not the last romantic (how would you be able to tell anyway?).
Yes, the composer did compose more than one "thing".
