Fanny was Felix Mendelssohns sister. The two used to compare each other´s pieces and Felix did
indeed give Fanny some encouragements. But she was never allowed to study music like her brother.
Despite this she developed a remarkable talent for piano music especially after her extensive
Italian travel which is the source of much inspiration in some of these pieces.
