 The composition of the concert overture The Hebrides (Fingal’s Cave) was also protracted. Its inspiration was a visit to the island of Staffa in the Hebrides, where Mendelssohn jotted down the first 20 bars of the overture in short score. In Italy in 1830, he produced a first version but was not happy with it. In February 1832 he finished a second version and in May performed it in London; but he was only satisfied with the third version, which he presented at a concert in Berlin on 10 January 1833.
For both works Mendelssohn devised an individual structural context. In the case of the Hebrides Overture this is thematic in nature. The work “is an extended first-movement sonata form in Mendelssohn’s typically individualized handling of this formal scheme. The central motif is treated as a germ cell appearing in various transformations” (musicologist Wulf Konold).
