This stage of the Focus Mendelssohn is dedicated not to Felix but to his sister Fanny, whose story is similar to that of many women. Despite her great talent, in fact, the family always hindered Fanny’s activity, not deeming it suitable for a young girl to devote herself professionally to music. Brother Felix did not agree and the musical bond between the two was indissoluble, as can be heard from the splendid Trio op. 11, composed by Fanny shortly before her untimely death.
