DOCS+ Fanny: The Other Mendelssohn

Overdue recognition for a groundbreaking genius.

Fanny Mendelssohn was the brilliant but neglected composer who spent her entire lifetime and much of her afterlife in the shadow of her famous composer younger brother Felix.

Writer and film-maker Sheila Hayman tells an inspirational story about her great-great-great-grandmother, and her film constitutes an important critique of today’s classical music world in which 90% of concerts are of works by men.

Our post-film discussion will be led by Rob Douglas, Head of Keyboard Studies at Oundle School.
