Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Felix Mendelssohn's elder sister Fanny was for years just a footnote in music history, but is now recognized as a gifted composer in her own right. Possessing all of the fragile and intimate qualities of the German Romantic tradition, her songs are notable for their sensitive word-setting and deeply personal expressiveness. This second volume includes ten world première recordings and is a collection of mostly unknown and unpublished settings of German poets such as Heine, Goethe and Hölty, coupled with six songs in English to texts by Byron and Mary Alexander. Volume 1 can be found on Naxos 8.570981.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
Volume 2 of a two-volume set, this program is handy if you are trying to build a collection of Fanny's songs. I must say that this performance is just OK.
