Trio Amour fou
An evening in the bourgeois-artistic salon of the composer
with Anna Barbara Kastelewicz, Katrin Dasch and Sylke Hannasky/Dafne-Marie Fiedler.
Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel was not only a provider of ideas and a critical reviewer of her brother Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy’s compositions, but a great composer and painter herself.
It was not until she was 40 that she began to publish her works, thus defying the traditions of the upper-middle-class Mendelssohn family, whose view was that a woman was responsible for the welfare of her family and that music served only to adorn a woman.
During this evening you will learn more about her wishes and desires, but also about her sadness and resignation.
Letters and diary entries and, of course, the music tell of this.
Enjoy an unforgettable evening full of emotional moments.
