I have a couple of books of her pieces but it appears its quite niche as I cant find many recordings on youtube.

Some of the pieces are published, some are not, so I have hunted down some to listen to.

If you like songs without words its similar in style.

I think they are slightly more interesting in the melodies, what you think ?


Study in F - unpublished



Andante soave op 5 (listen it all, there is surprise at 2:15 )



Melody C sharp minor op 4 no 2



Abschied von Rom



Fantasia in G Minor (this is not a piano piece - but its a amazing !)




Enjoy

There seems to be an Italian influence from a trip to Italy.

Il saterello romano - The roman saterllo (a type of italian dance)



Gondellied - (Gondola - like Venetian Gondala)



Abschied von Roma (piece above) - It means leaving rome.

I have always enjoyed both her and her younger brothers music. Thanks!

Years ago I sang in a choir, and we performed several cantatas by Fanny Hensel (her name after she married).

At one concert in Berlin, there were also some piano pieces of hers being performed.
I liked the allegro in c minor.


I think that Fanny is bolder in harmonies than Felix. Maybe because she didn't publish her works.


My grand piano is a Yamaha C2 SG.
My other Yamaha is an XMAX 300.
