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.
Das Jahr [Το Έτος] είναι ένας κύκλος 12 κομματιών της Fanny Mendelssohn αναφερόμενων στους δώδεκα μήνες. Ακούμε, τι άλλο, “Σεπτέμβριος, Στο Ποτάμι”. Στο πιάνο η Jennifer Eley.

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.
Das Jahr [The Year] is a cycle of 12 pieces by Fanny Mendelssohn referring to the twelve months of the year. We hear, of course, “September, At the River”. Performed by Jennifer Eley.
