"In my view, there are really only two types of people: you and all the others"
The Cultural Summer Program Commences: Reading and Concert
Throughout her life, Fanny Mendelssohn walked in her famous brother Felix's shadow. "Music will perhaps become his profession, whereas for you it can and should only be an adornment [...]" her father wrote to her. The conflict between talent, aptitude, and obedience, but also the close and affectionate relationship to her younger brother Felix become clear in the expressive correspondence. Corinna Harfouch will read from the letters of Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn and the Brandenburg State Orchestra will play their musical works conducted by Israel Yinon.
