    FANNY CECILIA MENDELSSOHN: “The black-browed cantor”

    Her life and compositions in music and words

    Madeleine Pierard (mezzo soprano),
    Christina Lawrie (piano)
    Karin Fernald (reader)

    Fanny Mendelssohn (1805-47) was as talented as her young brother, Felix, born four years later. She received the same musical education and composed prolifically in her early teens, before being persuaded by her father to take a back seat in favour of her brother. At the age of 40 she finally dared to publish a few compositions which were beginning to receive critical acclaim when she suddenly died at the age of 42.

    Christina Lawrie, “a young pianist of formidable intellect and boundless technique” is joined by the New Zealand born singer Madeleine Pierard. Karin Fernald specializes in devising and presenting biographical programmes with which she has toured worldwide.
