Women in Music at the RCM

Kate Molleson presents a Women in Music concert from the Royal College of Music in London. Featuring Sofya Gulyak in the UK premiere of a major piano sonata by Fanny Mendelssohn, and Joo Yeon Sir and Laura Snowden in a new work inspired by Fanny Mendelssohn's recently rediscovered piece.

Fanny Mendelssohn: Easter Sonata
Sofya Gulyak (piano)

Until recently, Fanny Mendelssohn's Easter Sonata was wrongly attributed to her brother Felix - not least because it's just so good! Thanks to some serious detective work, the music has now been correctly restored to its proper creator - and this is our first chance to hear it in the UK.
