Description

A piano piece in E flat major, with the simple title "Lied" (song) was Felix Mendelssohns surprise present to his sister Fanny on her birthday on 14 November 1828. Shortly afterwards she referred to the work as Song without Words and probably coined the phrase under which her brothers lyrical piano pieces, numbering nearly 50, are known today. The present edition contains in addition to the 48 well-known Songs without Words a number of individual compositions which because of their title or character seem to fit the classification Song without Words. These and the above mentioned first example of 1828 are united in this essential compilation of works in a genre favoured by the composer. An enriching addition to the piano repertoire, of interest for teaching as well as for recital purposes.

Reviews

Vienna Urtext is really making a major impact on the Urtext market. This is a fine scholarship and more! (…) If you are about to buy an edition of these works, make it this one. It eclipses its rivals. MMA Journal 01/2005

Wiener Urtext (…) offers a clutch of unnumbered extras by way of appendix (six without opus-number plus the Reiter-Lied of 1846), plus - no less than 27 pages of critical notes on variant readings. (…) Music Teacher 05/2002 (Michael Round)
