Felix Mendelssohn
NPR

Felix Mendelssohn, one of music's great prodigies, wrote a dozen chamber symphonies for string orchestra beginning when he was twelve. At fourteen he called it quits.

We begin a series of these short charmers, the String Symphonies,  this week on Mozart's Attic, and we'll continue with one a week until we run out. The kid did OK. See what you think.

His works were often long and impractical to record on 78 RPM discs.
