Fanny Mendelssohn, a “sister of the Muses” as her mother would call her, was a 19th Century wife, mother and carer, but also made her own musical path and became of one the most important pianists of her time, composing over 400 pieces. The title of the album is a reference to a poem Goethe sent Fanny to set it to music, highly spontaneous and experimental.
Pianist Paula Ríos brings the brilliance and sensitivity needed and guides through Fanny’s piano output, including two World Premiere Recordings.

I have always found the compositions by Fanny Mendelssohn (later Fanny Hensel née Mendelssohn-Bartholdy) to be of exceptional quality and interest. Spanish pianist Paula Ríos opens this most enjoyable album with Mendelssohn’s Easter Sonata (1828), and it is quite an exceptional piece of music. Ríos explains that she chose to record this piece after premiering the work in 2019 in Spain and Portugal recitals. She says that “the enthusiasm from audiences drove this recording” and I can well understand that enthusiasm for I share it…
As always with piano recordings from Gonzalo Noqué of Eudora, the DSD256 sound quality is superb. Gonzalo has captured the her performance in a large performing hall with very attractive acoustics, balancing very nicely the direct sound of the Steinway Model D with the natural reverberation of the hall. It is a recording of great clarity but great naturalness of sound. Very nicely done!
