Exciting news! My article on the "Easter Sonata" will appear in the journal Musical Quarterly. This is a wonderful opportunity for Hensel's work to be featured in such a prominent, peer-reviewed, publication. The article traces the documentary trail I followed to discover the manuscript and provides the details of the manuscript itself that confirmed the attribution to Fanny. I also provide an initial formal and hermeneutical analysis.
The full title:
“Authorship, Attribution, and the Historical Record: Solving the Mystery of the Easter Sonata by Fanny Hensel geb. Mendelssohn Bartholdy”
No word yet on which issue the article will appear in, but I will post an update to this space once I know!
