Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel Piano Music

$23.90 $19.90

Although best known as the sister of Felix Mendelssohn, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel (1805-47) was a virtuoso pianist and a composer of considerable merit in her own right. A child prodigy like her brother, Hensel performed chiefly at private functions and her oeuvre of more than 400 compositions remained largely unknown for more than a century after her untimely death.

Hensel’s accomplishments include songs, chamber works, and choral works, but her enduring reputation as a composer rests with her piano music. This volume is the first American publication of her important early works. Reproduced directly from rare first editions, its contents include Vier Lieder für das Pianoforte, Op. 2, Op. 6, and Op. 8, in addition t’so two selections from Six Mélodies pour le Piano, Op. 4 and Op. 5.
