Lied in A major
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
In 1830, Mendelssohn composed his second early Lied ohne Worte, the Lied in A major, which he appended to a letter sent to his sister from Munich. Just fifteen bars in length, it impresses as an improvisation, and ends softly on a tantalizing half cadence, as if the conclusion were to follow in his next letter. It did not, and the composer never published this lyrical miniature.
