Here is a pdf of the autograph. May be you - or somebody else - want to make and to provide a typeset version (?).Mendelssohn-Hensel,F.-.Sonatensatz-in-E-(pno-autograph-1822).pdf
I do like to typset scores - let me know if anyone is already doing this.

This has been published back in 1991 by Furore Edition, Kassel. Not sure if it is still available in print.

ah, yes! you caught me! thank you!
I am looking for Pejacevic's Op.19 Blumenleben

There's a score video for Op.19/4 Forget-me-nots:

The Croatian Music Centre links supplied in an earlier post are dead. It looks like they have created a new domain www.hgc.hr that has no sheet music resources.
Some Croatian book scores carry other scores: https://www.knjizara-dominovic.hr/proiz ... =pejacevic

Thank you for this. It does have the score for the piece in the video above: Život cvijeća op. 17, Potočnica (the opus number on the site is incorrect)

I'll make some enquiries outside of PP and report back.

Dora wrote some beautiful music in her short life; Blumenleben is probably my favorite, especially Red Carnations (No.6), with Rose (No.5) being a close second.

I remember Thal mentioning that he loved her Phantasie Concertante Op.48.

For those not familiar with her chamber works, her Sonata Op.26 in D for Violin and Piano is terrifically Romantic with a good helping of modern harmonies and progressions:

If the link is not available in your country, you can download the wonderful 1st movement here:

Click on the 9.2 MB [wma] link marked Allegro, just below the black and white picture of her with the violin.

Blumenleben reminds me a lot of Joachim Raff's wonderful Blätter und Blüten Op.135a, which has a magnificent "Forget-Me-Not". The middle section is stunningly beautiful:

No score, unfortunately.

I have the sheet music for "Dora Pejačević - Red Carnations". This file was collected from the internet, and I edited it to make it a bit better.

Piano music of Fanny Mendelssohn

Post by Angela »

Dear all,
I'm very interested to know more about Fanny Mendelssohn's piano works, life and bio.
Particularly I'm looking for the G minor nocturne sheet music, can't find it online.
Maybe it's been published on this website, but can't see it.
Thank you. 🌺
