DACAMERA Presents Pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason


Event Website

Date and Time for this Past Event


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. Tickets can be purchased at

In addition, mark your calendar for the February 23 Houston premiere screening of Mercury Studios’ new feature documentary, “Fanny: The Other Mendelssohn” at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. A panel discussion with BAFTA-winning filmmaker Sheila Hayman, DACAMERA Artistic Director Sarah Rothenberg and musicologist Marcia Citron will follow.
