"Malcolm Martineau weaves the piano accompaniment beautifully by the vocal parts and clearly shines the intense chromaticism of Fanny Hensel. The CD booklet contains an excellent essay by Susan Youens about Fanny Hensel and the repertoire on the CD and all song lyrics with English translation."

About the album

For this third volume in a complete survey of Mendelssohn songs, Malcolm Martineau shines the spotlight on ‘the other Mendelssohn’, with a complete volume of songs by his sister Fanny Hensel. Her professional attitude to domestic music-making is decribed by Martineau as ‘revolutionary’ and her early death, within five months of her celebrated brother, was a great loss to the musical world.
