Roosevelt Island Concerts Presents:
MUSIC BY WOMEN
Join us for a showcase of music composed by women this Wednesday, August 24th at Good Shepherd Center at 7:30 pm.
Fanny Mendelssohn, older sister of Felix Mendelssohn by four years, was forbidden to publish the music she wrote by her father and her brother; only after she died did Felix have her trio, Op. 11, published, in 1847. That same year, Clara Schumann, wife of Robert Schumann, published a trio of her own, Op. 17 in G-Minor.
Come hear these two trios, a Romance by Amy Beach, and songs by both Fanny and Clara transcribed and performed by outstanding RI residents Max Zeugner (bass) and Yiheng Yang (piano), as well as longtime friend Jean Schneider (piano) and RIC directors Ralph Allen (violin) and Iris Jortner (cello).
Amy Beach: Romance
Fanny Mendelssohn: Trio in D Minor, Op. 11
Fanny Mendelssohn: Selections from Lieder, Op. 9
Clara Schumann: Selections from Lieder, Op. 12
Clara Schumann: Trio in G Minor, Op.17
