Composer: Fanny Mendelssohn
Emilie18 has written a blog about Fanny Mendelssohn (14 November 1805-14 May 1847) whose life was overshadowed by her brother, Felix. The relationship with her father can not be explained solely on one letter, but he asks her to see her talents as feminine, not to be pursued as a career. Emilie’s post on Fanny and women’s issues merit a reading. It could not be written any better.
My thanks to Emilie18’s blog on Fanny Mendelssohn. A search turned up a free site online of Fanny’s music being played. Check out:
After listening, you may be inspired to find more information about Fanny and Felix. Please share what you find interesting.
