Add to Calendar 15-01-2012 15-01-2012 15 All in the Family: The Life and Music of Mendelssohn Steven Isserlis couldn't find good books to help teach his young son about the great composers, so he wrote two funny and charming volumes of his own: "Why Beethoven Threw the Stew" and "Why Handel Waggled His Wig." Now, the acclaimed cellist brings his irresistible wit to the stage in a series of hour-long musical portraits. This concert features the music of his distant cousin, who was probably the greatest teenaged composer of all time. Mendelssohn wrote some of his greatest masterpieces, such as his wonderful "Octet for Strings," before he was 17. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=100119 92nd Street Y true DD/MM/YYYY
