Songs Without Words

Songs without words


Songs without Words (Lieder ohne Worte) is a series of eight musical volumes consisting of six "songs" each (a total of 48) written for the solo piano by Romantic composer Felix Mendelssohn. These eight works were written at various points throughout his life as music that amateur pianists could perform. The piano became increasingly popular during this era, where it became the focal point of many households.
