The Mendelssohn Complete Edition continues to stimulate interest in the composer's early works. Although the D major Sextet bears the opus number 110, it was written in 1824 but – like many other works of this composer – only first published posthumously. The high opus number attributed to it bears no significance for its time of origin. The work resembles a concerto for solo instrument, in this case a piano solo accompanied by strings. In spite of its masterful formal design, the work of the 15-year-old composer still betrays the influence of Mozart, Beethoven and Hummel.
