Fanny Hensel: The Other Mendelssohn
© 2010 by Oxford University Press, Inc. All rights reserved. Granddaughter of the philosopher Moses Mendelssohn and sister of the composer Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Fanny Hensel (1805-47) was an extraordinary musician who left well over four hundred compositions, most of which fell into oblivion until their rediscovery late in the 20th century. This book offers a compelling, authoritative account of Hensel's life and music, and her struggle to emerge as a publicly recognized composer.
