Series: Piano Pieces by Fanny Hensel
Volume 1: Lyrical piano pieces (1836-39)
Andante con espressione, Andante con moto, Allegro molto vivace ma con sentimento (3,5’/4,5’/6,5′)(MA Ms. 44) (A. Huber)
Three piano pieces which the composer would most probably have called songs without words. Sensitive lines and a sonorous piano movement combine to create atmospheric experiences. Higher degree of difficulty.

Volume 2: Virtuoso Piano Pieces (1838)
Etude-Allegro con brio, Allegro di molto, Allegro grazioso
(5’/5’/5′) (MA Ms. 44) (Annegret Huber)
Three virtuoso piano pieces testify to the composer’s qualities as a dazzling pianist who, however, does not neglect musical expression above discreet outward brilliance.

Volume 3: Character pieces
Allegro molto vivace e leggiero B major, Allegro molto vivace C major, Andante con moto E major,
Andante espressivo E flat major (from MA Ms.49) (Annegret Huber)
Two rather lyrical and two virtuoso pieces from the last year of the composer’s life, when she died young, lead to speculation about the expressive qualities to which Fanny Hensel’s process of compositional maturity might still have led.

These five piano pieces, very different in character, originate from a creative phase in which the composer’s life circumstances changed greatly: Engagement and marriage to Wilhelm Hensel and the birth of her son Sebastian.
