Now available, free of subscription for a limited time at the link below, is my new, full-length article and works list on Fanny Hensel! This article was a labor of love: it is the product of 12 years of getting to know Fanny through her music, diaries, and letters - and, of course, all made possible by the work of the incredible individuals in the Mendelssohn scholarly community. A special tip of the hat to Marcia Citron, who wrote the first Grove article on Hensel in the ‘90s, and who provided early access to Hensel’s letters. And, as always, a special thanks to my Doktorvater, R. Larry Todd, whose work on his critical biography of Fanny Hensel sparked my own life-long interest in Hensel’s life and music.
Also, it was featured on the homepage for a while as a new article! *fistbumpfanny*
