Lied ohne Worte, Op 109

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Song without Words Opus 109 was Mendelssohn’s last work for cello and piano, written in 1845 but published after his death. It belongs to the great series of Songs without Words which run through his compositions from 1830 onwards. All are lyrical miniatures, and the ‘song’ for cello is one of the most perfect and memorable.
