Mendelssohn Unknown is the most complete and up-to-date documentary about Felix Mendelssohn ever made. The narrative structure is based on the original letters of Mendelssohn and his sister Fanny, combined with evocative period images.

The themes covered by the documentary include his training, his religious and cultural identity, his journey to Italy, his friendship with Bach, the Leipzig years, the fall into obscurity of his work following his death and the recent unearthing of many important unpublished works.

A blend of music and words will guide the public through Mendelssohn’s greatest masterpieces, illustrating their poetic background with images of the places that Mendelssohn himself experienced and recounted with his matchless art. With some of the most distinguished Mendelssohn specialists, including Riccardo Chailly, Steven Isserlis, Lang Lang, Kurt Masur, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Roberto Prosseda and Charles Rosen.

Bonus includes a concert of the famous pianist Roberto Prosseda in the awesome Teatro Olympico.
