The most intimate moments in the Mendelssohn family

At Christmas 1846, Felix Mendelsohn presented the manuscript of his second piano trio to his sister Fanny. Months later, Fanny died of a stroke. Felix followed before the year was out. The narrative of their relationship is complex, urgent and symbiotic.

A hint of its dynamics emerges in a new recording that is my Album of the Week on sinfinimusic.com. Click here.

  • Buying this recording. Sounds from the link that this is a refreshing approach and addition to the discography of these trios. The history of the brother/sister relationship is a valuable one here.
