Mendelssohns Salon; OSL Chamber Music Series at Carnegie Hall

Wednesday May 3, 2023, 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

OSL’s season-long celebration of women composers concludes with this program of piano and vocal works by Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel and her brother Felix Mendelssohn. Completed shortly before her death, Fanny’s Piano Trio is one of her impressive pieces. By contrast, Felix’s Piano Sextet was written when he was only 15, and the work was unknown until decades after his death. Soprano Liv Redpath and pianist Zoltán Fejérvári join St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble to amplify the voice of Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel.
