About the concert

Family Portrait - English Presentation

An online concert with the Carmel Quartet

Presented by Dr. Yoel Greenberg


Fanny Hensel Mendelssohn 

String Quartet in E Flat Major

Felix Mendelssohn 

String Quartet in F Major, Op. 80


In contrast to the way Felix Mendelssohn’s music was universally celebrated, the talent of his sister Fanny was suppressed throughout her life. 
Even today her works are seldom performed, despite their outstanding merit and despite her huge influence on Mendelssohn’s life and work. 
This concert will present a performance of Fanny Mendelssohn’s rarely-heard String Quartet together with a unique work by Felix in which he gives expression to his unbearable grief at her untimely death.


The Carmel Quartet, winner of many awards and scholarships, is one of the most active, prominent and diverse chamber ensembles in the country, and regularly performs in concerts in Israel and around the world.
Family Portrait is the first concert in the Strings and More concert series for the 2020-2021 season.
