Family Portrait

Presented by Dr. Yoel Greenberg

 

Fanny Hensel Mendelssohn

String Quartet in E Flat Major

 

 Felix Mendelssohn

String Quartet in F Major, Op. 80

 

In contrast to the way Felix Mendelssohn’s music was universally celebrated, the talent of his sister Fanny was suppressed throughout her life. Even today her works are seldom performed, despite their outstanding merit and despite her huge influence on Mendelssohn’s life and work. This concert will present a performance of Fanny Mendelssohn’s rarely-heard String Quartet together with a unique work by Felix in which he gives expression to his unbearable grief at her untimely death.
