Henselt Activities in 2012


October 20th. 2012 under the conductor Vladimir Kowalenko the Chamber orchestra of Schwabach presented a programme of music from the Romantic Period. In addition to music by Schubert, Gluck and Mozart they presented two string versions of Henselt`s piano music. These were arranged in the 19th. century by Ludwig von Brenner and are available in the Henselt archive. The pieces chosen were Two Waltzes Op.28 and the `Ave Maria` Op.5 #4. The latter has received a modern arrangement by Annette Isserlis (published by `Fountayne Editions) in memory of the Honorary President Richard Beattie Davis.
