Γεννημένη σε μια εποχή που η καριέρα επαγγελματία συνθέτη ήταν αδιανόητη για γυναίκα, η αδελφή του Felix Mendelssohn, Fanny ασχολήθηκε με τη σύνθεση, πιανιστικών κυρίως κομματιών, στο περιθώριο των καθηκόντων της ως “υπάκοης κόρης” αρχικά, μητέρας και συζύγου στη συνέχεια. Ευτύχησε να δει κάποια δημοσιευμένα με την υπογραφή του διάσημου αδελφού της ο οποίος την αγαπούσε και την υποστήριζε.
Ακούμε το έξοχο πρώτο μέρος από το Πιάνο Τρίο σε Ρε ελάσσονα, από τους London Bridge Trio.

Born at a time when the career of professional composer was unthinkable for a woman, Felix Mendelssohn’s sister Fanny was involved in the composition of mostly piano pieces, on the margins of her role as “obedient daughter” initially, mother and wife afterwards. She was fortunate to see some of it published under the name of her famous brother Felix, who loved and supported her.
We hear the splendid first part of her Piano Trio in D minor, performed by the London Bridge Trio.



Stay Safe!

As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
