Although best known as the sister of Felix Mendelssohn, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel was a virtuoso pianist and a composer of considerable merit in her own right. A child prodigy like her brother, Hensel performed chiefly at private functions and her oeuvre of more than four hundred compositions remained largely unknown for more than a century after her untimely death. Hensel's accomplishments include songs, chamber works and choral pieces but her enduring reputation as a composer rests with her piano music. This volume is a publication of her important early works.
