Der Blumenkranz
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.
