Making the piano sing: During Mendelssohn’s lifetime, his Lieder ohne Worte (Songs without Words), were already some of the most popular works within the Romantic piano repertoire. They accompanied the composer’s life like musical diary entries – sometimes cheerful, sometimes dreamy, sometimes melancholy and sometimes dramatic. With their great expressive range, these poetic piano miniatures provide deep insights into the emotional world of the sensitive Romantic.
