Event Details

Fanny Hensel – „Mit den Fingern singen“

Judith Kessler, reader
Elżbieta Sternlicht, piano

Fanny Hensel, born Mendelssohn Bartholdy, is considered the most important composer of the 19th century and an exceptionally talented pianist. However, only her brother Felix became famous. The granddaughter of the great Enlightenment philosopher Moses Mendelssohn had to spend her short life “composing” against the resistance of her family and bourgeois etiquette, yet she left behind well over 450 works, only a fraction of which have been printed to this day.

Elżbieta Sternlicht plays compositions from various creative periods of Fanny Hensel as well as Felix and Arnold Mendelssohn, which Judith Kessler classifies textually along her life story and the events in Berlin society of the time.
