Lied ohne Worte, Op 109

composer

 
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.

La «Romance sans paroles» (Lied ohne Worte) Opus 109, dernière œuvre de Mendelssohn pour violoncelle et piano, fut écrite en 1845 mais publiée seulement après sa mort. Elle appartient à la grande série de Romances sans paroles qui jalonnent ses compositions à partir de 1830. Ce sont toutes des miniatures lyriques, et la romance pour violoncelle est l’une des plus parfaites et des plus mémorables.

Das Lied ohne Worte Op. 109 war Mendelssohns letztes Werk für Cello und Klavier, das 1845 geschrieben, aber erst nach seinem Tod veröffentlicht wurde. Es gehört jener grossartigen Serie von Liedern ohne Worte an, die ab 1830 sein Oeuvre durchziehen. Es handelt sich dabei in allen Fällen um lyrische Miniaturen, und das „Lied“ für Cello ist eines der perfektesten und einprägsamsten.
