Famous Name Ferdinand
Ferdinand Hiller
was a German composer, conductor, writer and music-director. In 1822 the 13-year old Felix Mendelssohn entered his life. The Mendelssohn family was at that time staying briefly in Frankfurt and the young Hiller visited them where he was immensely impressed by the playing of Felix (and even more so by that of his sister Fanny Mendelssohn). When their acquaintance was renewed in 1825 the two boys found an immediate close friendship, which was to last until 1843.

But in fact it seems to have been more to do with Hillerâs succession to Mendelssohn as director of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra in 1843.
