    Default Fanny Mendelssohn

    Pianist, composer, sister of Felix Mendelssohn.

    She has composed over 460 works - does anyone know how many of these has been recorded?

    I did a quick blog post on some of her SQ recordings. I'll be getting the Takacs recording in the post in the next few days so can almost guarantee that will be in there too by next week.

    Apart from the famous piano trio her most interesting compositions seem to be Das Jahr and the Allegro Molto in C minor, both for piano solo. I wish there were more and better recordings of her songs.

    Julianne Baird has recorded a fine disc of the songs with the versatile Keith Weber at the fortepiano.
