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.

Lunchtime Concert - Exquisite Strings

Gustav Holst’s C Major Suite is a light-hearted piece composed for his students in the St Paul’s Girls’ School. Carulli’s Guitar Concerto in E Minor is a milestone of the repertoire and an exceptionally balanced and refined work of the Classical period. From the elegiac opening to the heroic final movement, Nielsen’s Little Suite for Strings is a great collection of human emotions.

Lunchtime Concert - Mercurial Spirit

A short, transparent work, almost Haydenesque in character, Shostakovich’s Ninth sits lightly between such giants as his tragic Eighth and Tenth Symphonies. Schumann’s cello concerto has recently become a staple piece of the romantic cello repertoire after a century of obscurity. It’s a work that combines the composer’s most unique and personal qualities – intense lyricism, rhythmic vigor and a fair amount of ambiguity.
