poster for 2009 Being Mendelssohn: Disc 5
× Disc V juxtaposes an early masterwork in Mendelssohn’s Opus 18 Quintet, composed when Mendelssohn was only seventeen, with a set of the composer’s exquisite Lieder ohne Worte for solo piano. Robert Schumann’s Opus 63 Piano Trio complements these works with that Romantic master’s characteristic passion and expressivity.
