DCD 079 - Fanny Mendelssohn's Chamber Music

Episode #79 of the "DCD Classical 'Cast" presents three works from a Troubadisc CD. "Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel: Piano Chamber Music" includes music composed when she was young, after her marriage, and the year of her death.

Although not given the same career opportunities as her brother Felix, Fanny enjoyed a rich creative life. While her father expected her to abandon composing after marriage, her husband, Prussian court painter Wilhelm Hensel encouraged Fanny to continue.

The music on this recording presents a fascinating look at this very talented composer.
