Mendelssohn-Hensel: Piano Sonatas (Piano Sonatas in C and G Minor) (Naxos: 8.570825)
Usually ships within 1-3 days
it is only relatively recently that Fanny Mendelssohn has stepped out of the shadow of her more famous sibling Felix. Nearly all of her five hundred or so compositions remained unpublished during her lifetime, despite their undeniable beauty, lyricism and passion.
This volume of piano music spans almost her entire adult life, from youthful experiments to music written less than a year before her untimely death, giving the listener a whirlwind tour of a much underrated composer.
