Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel – the black brow’d cantor

Thu 7th Mar 2019 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Fanny Mendelssohn, who later came to be known as Fanny Hensel, was a German pianist and composer. She was the sister of the composer Felix Mendelssohn and is considered to have been as equally gifted as her genius brother.  Even though there is a constant comparison of her music with that of Felix, she had an altogether different expression, which was more passionate in nature. It is only now that her music is coming to light and being published.
