This book explores the conceptions of time, memory and history found in his instrumental compositions, presenting an intriguing new perspective on his ever-popular music. Focusing on Mendelssohns innovative development of cyclic form, Taylor investigates how the composer was influenced by the aesthetic and philosophical movements of the period. This is of key importance not only for reconsideration of Mendelssohns work and its position in nineteenth-century culture, but also more generally concerning the relationship between music, time and subjectivity.

One of very few detailed accounts of Mendelssohns music, the study presents a new and provocative reading of the meaning of the composers work by connecting it to wider cultural and philosophical ideas.
