It earned Mendelssohn widespread acclaim at the age of twenty. It also led to one of the very few references which Mendelssohn ever made to his origins: 'To think that it took an actor and a Jew's son (Judensohn) to revive the greatest Christian music for the world!' (cited by Devrient in his memoirs of the composer). Mendlessohn was also able to revive interest in the work of Franz Schubert. Schumann discovered the manuscript of Schubert's Ninth Symphony and sent it to Mendelssohn who promptly premiered it in Leipzig on March 21, 1839, more than a decade after the composer's death.

Mendelssohn has often been named "Felix the Happy," and he truly deserved the title.

Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809-47) had perhaps the greatest influence of any single person on the formation of nineteenth-century musical taste. He brought about the acceptance of Bach and Händel as the equals of the great classic Viennese school. His attempt to make religious music one of the major means for the revival of church life largely failed, however. This Romantic struggle to free Bach's music from its Lutheran roots and present it for adoration in aesthetic temples called concert halls is still a strong impulse. L. Arbeitman wrote (August 30, 2005): Eric Bergerud wrote: < Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809-47) had perhaps the greatest influence of any single person on the formation of nineteenth-century musical taste.

Christoph Spering was one of the first conductors to apply the principles of historically informed performance practice to music of the Romantic era, leading cycles of Beethoven and Brahms symphonies.
