'An exceptionally engaging disc' (Classic CD)

'The most attractive programming of the Mendelssohn duets yet devised' (Fanfare, USA)
This delicately sensual setting is well matched by Mendelssohn’s heartfelt melodic outpourings, this time through-composed so that the second stanza launches with completely new material in the tonic minor. Although the ‘Tröpfchen Tau’ receive no fewer than four mentions they are all quite different in character, the droplets being variously picked out by the piano.

Cette mise en musique délicatement sensuelle est bien assortie aux épanchements mélodiques sincères de Mendelssohn; elle est en outre durchkomponiert, de sorte que la deuxième strophe est émise avec un matériau entièrement nouveau, dans le mineur tonique. Les «Tröpfchen Tau», mentionnées pas moins de quatre fois, sont toutes d’un caractère complètement différent, les gouttelettes étant diversement rendues par le piano.

Français: Hyperion Records Ltd

Diese zarte gefühlvolle Vertonung entspricht Mendelssohns tief empfundenen melodischen Ergüssen, dieses Mal durchkomponiert, so daß die zweite Strophe vollständig neues Material in der Moll Grundtonart einführt. Obwohl der „Tröpfchen Tau“ nicht weniger als viermal erwähnt wird, sind sie alle im Charakter grundlegend verschieden, die Tröpfchen werden vom Klavier auf verschiedene Weise interpretiert.
