Mendelssohn was first taught piano by his mother. He then made very rapid progress under subsequent tutors, including Zelter.

He developed a wide repertoire, agility, sight reading and powers of improvisation. Aged 12 Zelter took him to stay with Goethe at Weimer, there, Mendelssohn said ; " I play here much more than I do at home;rarely less than four hours sometimes six or maybe eight.

Goethe sits down beside me and when I have finished, I ask for a kiss or take one. You cannot imagine how good or how kind he is to me"





After a performance of a one act opera written and conducted by Mendelssohn, Zelter addressed the audience saying "My dear boy from this day you are no longer an apprentice, but a full member of the brotherhood of musicians"

Mendelssohn was then fourteen years old.

With family he travelled to switzerland. His awareness of the music of others shows in this quote concerning Yodelling

"This kind of singing sounds harsh and unpleasent when it is heard nearby... in the valleys mountains and woods, when you hear it mingling with the answering echoes it sounds beautiful."

Mendelssohn was also quite a good artist as this scene he painted whilst in Switzerland shows......




The first mention of songs without words occurs in one of Fanny's ( his sister) letters in 1829 the year the first book of SWW was published.

In opus 30 number 3 is a simple hymn like piece with an intro and epilogue.

No.6 is a barcarole ( a song sung by venetian gondolas with an accompaniment suggesting the rocking of a boat)

Sources: The great composers issue 11, the great musicians number 34.

We now move onto the second opus which is number 30.

Opus 30 no.1 is played here by Valencia who had this to say about it,

"First, apologies for the very poor quality of this recording. I tried recording this straight to my computer, but the sound is distorted and does not sound the way it sounds through the headphones. I am looking into getting a cheap usb audio interface which I hope might help.

Second, the lovely video for this piece was put together by fellow PWer LimeFriday. I love the images. Thank you ((((LimeFriday!)))) This Song without Words --Op. 30 No. 1- is sometimes nicknamed "Contemplation", and while watching the beautiful and haunting images I think about the lives of these poor old abandoned pianos, and all the glorious pieces that were played on them.

This piece was a challenge to learn. The hardest part for me was/is playing the melody smoothly, and making it sing out over the accompaniment. This is because the right hand has to play both the melody and part of the accompaniment. I didn’t quite succeed in keeping the accompaniment quiet, so that will be part of my future practice.

Overall my playing of this piece desperately needs a metronome. My pace is still a bit slow, and there are hesitations and mistakes. However, this is the best I could do at this time.

Thank you to Richard (zrtf90) for listening to my pre-recital recordings and for encouragement and advice about what to focus on in practice. I would have given up trying to improve these pieces long ago if not for his encouragement.

I am really happy that I participated in this recital. Hopefully we will do more themed recitals like this so that others on ABF can have a chance to participate as well.

It’s been great fun joining with everyone to put on this recital"

Next up with opus 30 no.2 is Numerian.

I think Mendelssohn would have loved this piano room!!

Opus 30 no.3 is played by Pianostudent88 who had this to say about the chosen piece;

"
Op. 30 No. 3 is in my opinion the easiest of Felix Mendelssohn's Songs Without Words (which is not to say it is easy!), thus barely within my reach after much more intense work than I normally put into a piece. What I think makes it easier is the slow tempo and the hymn-style arrangement.

It is Song Without Words #9, sometimes called "Consolation." I didn't think about Consolation when I was playing it though. I was thinking about getting all the notes, and balancing the accompaniment and the melody, and observing the dynamics, and pedaling sensitively. It's perhaps an overly cautious rendition. Maybe for the next themed recital, I'll see what happens if, after all my practicing, I just cut loose with a piece. I recorded it in one take, which pleases me.

For the recording, I played it somewhat freely: not trying to be free or rubato, but not counting it rigidly. I did do my share of rigid counting while practicing it. Although I don't think I was mashing the pedal there is, annoyingly, still pedal noise on the recording, although I was completely unaware of it when I was playing.

There are a few places where the notes are marked portato, and I played those notes without pedal in order to preserve the slight detachment in sound. I'm not entirely sure I like the effect; see if you can tell where they occur and what you think.

I wanted to borrow a tripod for the recording, but ran out of time. Oh well. I feel like my left hand is doing so much work it would be nice for it to get some camera time. Maybe next time.

I am pleased with the runs at the beginning and the end because I figured out how to do the "thumb over" technique on them (which as far as I can tell has nothing to do with the thumb going over, but just means that it's not the "thumb under" technique.). This is where you just move your hand quickly to the side to reach the next hand position and set of notes, instead of tucking the thumb under the hand to reach the next note. I had been reading about the "thumb over" technique for a long time and it didn't make any sense to me until I started working on this piece. I don't know if technically the beginning and ending runs sound very good, but I'm still personally pleased with them."

Moving onto opus30 no 5 played by Beric who had this to say concerning all three pieces he has played.

"Your'Pick'n Mix'Songs without Words has given tremendous stimulus and encouragement to a world of pianists. At a stroke you have injected fun into music making. The idea that a pianist,however modest his aspirations,can bid for a piece in this collection; prepare it,record and replay it on the Internet ..what a brilliant idea ! As a bonus you appear with nearly thirty other musicians world-wide.

I am looking forward to the complete recital. It will be full of variety and freshness;and will reflect such a diversity of talent and interpretation.
I trust that you have plans for a similar venture in the future."

And to conclude todays opus, we have opus 30 no. 6 played by Dire tonic, who had this to say after gallantly stepping into the breach for Limefriday:

"I've taken it a fair bit slower than indicated on my score but listening after taking a break I think it could be slower still. I could have made more of some of the rubatos. Bars 22 and 44 should have been at pp not mf . And a more pronounced rall at the end. I don't know how I missed that. But, then again, I was recording....'nuff said. I’ve finally given up on the Knight upright. It’s too loud for the room and horribly regulated so here using my humble Privia running galaxy vintage D and – hiding a multitude of sins - lashings of convolution reverb.

Coming back to the music - what a charming song this is. I can just imagine being ferried down the Grand Canal passing under the Rialto bridge on a grey autumn day.

Sadly, LimeFriday, who originally signed up for this piece, had to let it go due to a hand injury. So, if I may, LimeFriday, I dedicate this performance to you, hoping your injury will heal quickly and that you will take up the Venetian Gondola song where you left off. I think it's a little gem. "

I have a soft spot in my heart for opus 19, as I have played (or attempted to play) 5 of the 6. I think we're off to a great start, with an international cast of performers and some really heartfelt performances.

Opus 19 no.1 played by Beric: Really made the melody stand out, and at such short notice too. Wow - I'm impressed.

opus 19 no.2 played by RagnhildK: Very smooth - wonderful control of dynamics.

opus 19 no.3 Played by EvelynS: I think you captured the spirit of it - I can hear the horns blowing and the hunters charging.

Opus 19 no.4. Played by Beric: Great buildup to the climax and then back down for the quiet ending. Loved it.

opus 19 no.5 played by ganddalf: This is the only one of opus 19 I haven't played - I always thought it was too hard for me - you make it sound so easy! And from memory too - excellent job!

opus 19 no.6 played by Recaredo: Very nice playing and video work. I can feel the gondola gently rocking.

Sam

I'm sure I've seen musicusblau (sp?) on youtube doing 67-4...since he's already involved in SWWs perhaps he would add that? (or is there more than one musicusblau?)...


(best of luck to Carey..)


Is this what we're doing? I may be able to make a go at it, and perhaps if that doesn't work we can use this already made video. "Presto" is a relative term, isn't it? laugh

for some reason i cannot contact musicusblau by pm. on pw. it says no such user exists!
I have looked on youtube and cannot find the correct opus no.

Presto is indeed a relative term! I would use it loosely....

if you wish to try to fill for carey that would be great.

I am in awe at all the talent on display here. Valencia, I think you are too hard on yourself in your comments on Op 30 No 1; I think it's a beautiful rendition with a clear melody. Thank you to everyone for the beautiful music.

Are you allowed to comment directly on these? If so, that was lovely, Beric. My dad loved piano music more than I do. I suddenly missed him very much . . . . this piece is a must for me to have ago at . .

Great stuff! Atmospheric; my wife used to play Fingal`s Cave from the Hebridean Suite years ago on our ole Broadwood This piece has a Scottish feel to it, I think.

The third one so far. A high bar has been set . . . There`s some seriously good playing here. Very confident and strident rendition here, young lady . . . . no messin`!

ganddalf's playing of opus 19 no.5.


Ithink you deserved a stiff drink after that. Tumbling waterfalls, no let up, really really flowing and bright. You`ll have to forgive my poor descriptive efforts. . . Very good indeed!

DanS, very nice interpretation, nice speed, the bit agressive sound fits the piece nicely.

Dire Tonic, wow, excellent , nice phrasing, dynamics. Shame your room was too small fot the acoustic...
Given you had to step in for Limefriday, how much time did you have to study this?

I see the Opus 30 players have jumped right in where Op.19 players left off....that is with just wonderful, expressive playing across the board. Thank you all so much for this extraordinary recital. Bravo to each of you.

Thanks Sam and Peter for your feedback!

I've just listened to this second book, and loved the six performances, I see this week is going to be so great.

Thanks so much Valencia, Numerian, Piano Student, Dan, Beric and Dire Tonic for your submissions. They all are amazing.

I felt yesterday that I did not give each their due by only commenting generally at the conclusion of listening to all.

Today, two at a time. Valencia, how beautifully haunting, yes with some hesitations but overall you captured the mood of contemplation perfectly. And those pictures!!! Totally in theme with the music. Very well done!!

Numerian, wow, totally different mood set in this piece. I felt like I was galloping over the countryside. Beautiful staccato and technique to keep the melody so flowing! Also very well done. I'm going to have to practice hard before recording anything. You guys are wonderful pianists!! Simply beautiful playing! No excuses necessary as there is much of which to be proud!!!

Pianostudent88, I just closed my eyes and listened. A little halting as you started. But then you just really quieted down and played very well. How long it takes to prepare a piece does not matter. Only the end result matters. Very nicely done!!

DanS, totally different mood in this piece!! Again I found myself galloping over the countryside! You are obviously a very accomplished pianist. It shows!! The tempo mandates good technique and facility which you definitely have! I'm floored!!!

Gee, running out of superlatives!!! Beric, beautiful just as yesterday's performances. Someone joked about your age. I'm right there with you!! Your left hand looked much stronger with independent fingers than mine!! Bravo for taking three of these pieces so far!! Enjoy your playing very much!!

Dire tonic, that's a keyboard??? Wow!! I have no experience with keyboads or digital pianos. You made that instrument sing!! Absolutey could feel myself floating down a river tumbling over the rushing water! Very moving.

All of you are raising the bar BIG TIME!!! Congratulations to all of you!!! BRAVO Indeed!!!!!

Great playing again on round two. Numerian, I think you nicely captured the elegance of that piece, one of my favorites (I really do like so many of these).

I really love Valencia's (Limefriday's)video, and of course his/her playing. I wasn't very familiar with that one, I'm certainly going to check it out.

Thanks dynamobt and wouter79 for your kind comments. blush

Valencia - why u apologize. I love your rendition of the piece. Picture was kinda sad. I would like to know how to put the pictures rather than myself in the video.

Numerian - I think it's proper to say that you've done justice to the piece. The composer must be happy to listen to this.

Pianostudent88 - beautiful piece. I could see you are totally enjoying the piece.

Dan S - zesty & yummy rendition of the piece. Enjoyed it.

Beric - Sir, I am becoming of one of your admirers now. You are so awesome. You can play anything.

Dire Tonic - what a beautiful piece and you played it well too.

Thank you everyone for the excellent performances.
