A nice short piece by Fanny Mendelssohn whose works are rarely heard. (Tempo = Allegretto)



Thank you for listening.

IMSLP. Look under Hensel, Fanny.

Thank you for sharing your sensitive rendition of this rarely heard work.

Fanny Mendelssohn produced approximately 400 compositions during her brief life. Many of them were originally published under her more famous brother's name.

It must have been tough being female in the 19th century - much less a female composer - given the prevailing attitudes toward women at the time. Per Wiki: When Fanny was 15 "Her father wrote to her in 1820 "Music will perhaps become his [i.e. Felix's] profession, while for you it can and must be only an ornament".

I definitely would like to hear more of her compositions, as well as those of Clara Schumann.
