Lunchtime Concert - Transcendent Beauty



Rosalind Martin  voice

Fanny Hensel 6 Lieder, Op. 1
Robert Schumann Eichendorff Liederkreis, Op. 39

Fanny Hensel has found a place alongside the nineteenth century’s most innovative and relevant lieder composers, side-by-side with giants such as Robert Schumann and her own brother Felix Mendelssohn. These musical settings of colossal figures of German romantic poetry like Eichendorff, Heine, Geibel and Goethe explore the feelings of melancholy, unrequited love and the transcendental beauty of nature.
