The eldest of the famed British musical family of seven musical prodigies, pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason possesses dazzling technical skills and spellbinding musicality that have propelled the young musician into the international spotlight. She makes her Houston debut at DACAMERA in a recital featuring an equally exciting Houston premiere: Fanny Mendelssohn’s “Easter” Sonata – first lost for 150 years, then, when found, mistakenly attributed to her brother Felix, and finally recognized as her own and premiered in her name in 2012 – heard now for the first time live on the DACAMERA stage. Kanneh-Mason performs Mendelssohn’s sonata with works by two of Fanny Mendelssohn’s Romantic contemporaries: Schumann’s intimate “Scenes from Childhood” and the virtuosic final piano sonata of Chopin.
