Mendelssohn's Lieder Ohne Worte, or "Songs without Words," is among the most loved, most played collections in the Romantic piano repertoire. Reproduced from the authoritative Breitkopf & Härtel edition, this volume contains all of these popular compositions — more than 40 pieces, including such favorites as Spinning Song, Spring Song, and Venetian Gondola Song. Composed at various points throughout his life, Mendelssohn compiled this collection of short works for the amateur pianist looking for high quality, yet not-to-difficult music. Still practiced and performed today, "Songs without Words" is often considered to be Mendelssohn's greatest legacy as a composer. For study or play, this work represents and admirable addition to any music library.
