Given that large sections of Fanny Hensel’s piano cycle are clearly orchestral in conception, this magnum opus by the important female composer was (simply) crying out to be orchestrated. On the other hand, her extensive musical cycle also contains genuinely pianistic passages that would have lost much of their musical substance had they been transferred to other instruments.
Whereas a composer like Ravel, in his orchestration of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, occasionally added notes of his own, Torp has remained strictly faithful to the original in this respect – using, as his basis, Fanny Hensel’s own annotated manuscript first published in autumn 2000. In parts 1, 2 and 12 the composer incorporated references to A Midsummer Night’s Dream composed by her brother Felix, and in the final Choral (No. 13) it is possible to discern the beginning of Bach’s St Mathew Passion. Martin Torp has underlined these musical references by appropriate orchestration in his transcription.

Ouvertüre C-Dur for Orchestra (10’)
(strings, 2.2.2.2-4.2.0.0. timp.)
First publication

Composed in 1834. „Con fuoco“ proceeded by a slow introduction. Suitable for amateur as well as professional orchestras.
“The work boasts bold modulations, a finely controlled rise and fall of tension, and scoring of a resourcefulness bordering on the quirky - some very low pedal notes for the horn, and a trumpet fanfare appearing from out of the blue.” (THE TIMES, March 10, 1994)

Hero und Leander (1832)
Dramatical scene for soprano and orchestra (12')
scoring: 2.Picc.2.2.2.-3.2.3.1.timp. and strings
(E. M. Blankenburg) First publication

Fanny Hensel devides the poem in two Recitativos and two Arias. The metaphors within text the give her rich opportunity for musical illustration. At the same time different musical moods are introduced to characterize the changing states of the dramatical process. “This work...begins to approach a kind of piece with which Hensel could have had great artistic success....It is a clear indication of her acceptance of herself as a real romantic composer. No longer trying to imitate Bach or Handel, but following her own instincts as to subject, form and vocabulary, Fannys awakening understanding of herself as a composer paralleled Felix’s, who finished his most successful cantata (which also happenes to be on a secular theme and employs an original form), ‘Die erste Walpurgisnacht’ in February of 1832.” (V. Sirota)

Zum Fest der Heiligen Caecilia
for S, B, choir (SATB) and piano
(Text: Latin) (Willi Gundlach)

Saint and matyr of the early Christian church, honored as patroness of music since the late 15th century, Cecilia is one of the few female saints evoked in the canon of the Catholic Mass. It is a really doxological piece – a short hymn on words of praise ascribing glory to God.

“Die Hochzeit kommt” /The wedding is coming“ 1829
Festspiel for soli (SSSTBB), choir (SATB) and orchestra (Marilee Vana)
Scoring: strings, 2.2.2.2.-2.3.0.0., timp.
Text: Wilhelm Hensel
First Publication

Festspiel, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel’s first extended work with orchestra, composed for her parent’s silver wedding anniversary, is scored for tenor, two basses, two sopranos and alto soloists, four-part mixed chorus and orchestra. Hensel set this tri-part incidental piece using a text by Wilhelm Hensel describing an allegory about three weddings: the first, the silver, and the golden. Festspiel is a light-hearted, celebratory piece containing humorous elements and lyrical melodies which culminate in a joyous choral section of praise.

Hiob (1831)
Cantata for A, soli, choir (SATB) and orchestra (15’)
(Conrad Misch) First Publication

This portrayal of Job’s suffering as a test of his belief in God is dramatically and expressively. Its symmetrical form (Chorus, Alto-Recit., Trio, Alto-Recit., Chorus) can be seen as symbolic and the question „Was ist der Mensch?“ (What is human beeing?), which is expressed in several melodic-harmonic variations in the opening chorus, seems to symbolically represent the search for the answer. The recitative and arioso call for four solo voices but a choral performance of these sections is also possible.

Lobgesang (1831)
„Meine Seele ist stille“.
Cantata for S, A, choir (SATB) and orchestra (20’)
(Conrad Misch) First Publication

This cantata, the text of which is related to birth, was composed a year after the birth of Fanny Hensel’s son Sebastian. The form (Pastorale, Chorus, Rez., Arie, Chorus) is based on the structure of Bach’s cantatas, the main difference being the lenghty choral fugue with which the work closes. The „heart” of the composition can be seen in the soprano aria „O dass ich tausend Zungen hätte“. In this aria the translation of the example set by Bach into Romantic compositional style is especially clear.

Oratorium (1831)
for soli, choir (SATB) and orchestra (40’)
(Elke Mascha Blankenburg) First Publication
Scoring: 2.2.2.2.-2.2.3.0, Timp, strings

This oratorio is the third of three church works composed in rapid succession on 1831; its scoring is more abundant than that of the cantatas composed prior to it: there are five- to eight-part choruses and the orchestra is expanded to include three trombones. Once again Fanny Hensel looks back in musical history, this time to the pre-Baroque era, and adds a new dimension to her own compositional language by doing so. At times modal harmonies create an “archaic” atmosphere for the biblical texts.
