Fanny & Felix
Part of: Sounds Like a Symphony
Pay What You Can
Tickets include access to concert recording for 7 days after it airs
Named “one of the outstanding violinists of his generation” by The New York Times, Augustin Hadelich returns with OSL as guest leader, leading Fanny & Felix, a program he devised exclusively for this concert.
Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel and her younger brother Felix were both child prodigies, but while Felix became one of the rising stars of his generation, Fanny’s star was held back by the societal expectations and prejudices at the time. Written 1835, Hensel’s passionate and emotionally complex String Quartet in E-flat Major—her only string quartet—is one of the first known examples of a string quartet composed by a woman. The string quartet is paired with Felix Mendelssohn’s String Octet, considered by many to be the composer’s first true masterpiece.
