Beyond desire pierre la mure

Thank you! The author of Moulin Youge has written another novel with its historical subject the victim of histrionic intent. La Mure has taken promiscuous liberties with the basic facts of Felix Mendelssohn's life to shape a story which seems ruthlessly uninterested in authenticity. Here we meetyoung Mendelssohn embarking on an early affair for a friend's sake, going to England and living with an Italian opera singer, staying with Chopin in Paris and returning to Berlin and banking, only to dash off to Frankfurt to court Cilette- a pastor's daughter- whose ""feeling"" took them to Leipzig. After about ten years, Mendelssohn; still questioning his destiny in a small town, disheartened by his wife's lack of passion but back with her after another go at the opera star in Dresden, finds Bach's St. Matthew's Passion in a butcher shop and struggles against fanatical violence here perjudice and anti-semitism have their turn to perform the work his crowning achievement.
