A reception follows.

Fanny Hensel (1805-1847) was a German pianist and composer of tremendous musical talent and skill like her famous younger brother, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy.  While Fanny’s works were heard in Sonntagsmusiken (Sunday musicales) at the Hensel home in Berlin, Felix’s reached international audiences. The painting here depicts Fanny’s music room in her home.

It is a delight to welcome members of the Chamber Music Society of San Francisco to St. Paul's Burlingame for this concert to continue to bring to light Fanny Hensel's chamber compositions, the Piano Quartet (1822) for piano, violin, viola, and cello and the Piano Trio (1847) for piano, violin, and cello, along with three of her works for piano solo.
