Programme Note

Fanny Mendelssohn and Clara Schumann struggled for recognition as musicians and composers of talent equal to their celebrated male family members. Felix Mendelssohn paid homage to his beloved sister in a string quartet which bears the title “Requiem for Fanny”; these little-known songs reveal her genius. Robert Schumann’s music and above all his songs were inspired by Clara, whose lush and poignant Romances show what might have been.
