Orchestra of St. Luke’s: Mendelssohns Salon, at Merkin Concert Hall

Tuesday May 2, 2023, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

$30 – $40

Program

Orchestra of St. Luke’s with Liv Redpath, soprano
FANNY & FELIX MENDELSSOHN – Songs
FANNY MENDELSSOHN – Piano Trio in D Minor, Op. 11
FELIX MENDELSSOHN – Piano Sextet in D Major, Op. 110

Our 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 most original and impressive pieces. By contrast, Felix’s rarely performed Piano Sextet was written when he was only 15, and the work was unknown until decades after his death. The songs by both Fanny and Felix on this program show the similarities and the unique qualities of the two siblings. Soprano Liv Redpath joins St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble to amplify the voice of Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel.
