Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel and Clara Schuman

To start with Mendelssohn…
Fun music! None of it sounds groundbreaking to me but it did feel well constructed, solid. Not at all unpleasant to listen to. Were she alive today there would be no question for any father to let her have her works published or wether or not she should pursue a life of music.

As for Schumann…
Beautiful. I would enjoy hearing this with fortepiano. I like that the violin is not a virtuosically flashy part. The overall feel of the piece for me is one of sophistication. It does not try to impress and for that reason it succeeds.
