Mendelssohn’s mastery of melody, form, counterpoint, and the chamber idiom were imitated for generations. Bookended by Mendelssohn’s own works, his admirers respond with their own Mendelssohnian gifts: Schumann’s piano trio; Brahms’s lyricism through the dark voice of the viola; and Tchaikovsky’s character pieces, combining Russian melancholy and splendor in selections from “The Seasons”.
