Mendelssohn - Romance Sans Paroles Op109 - Cello/Piano Accompaniment Henle HN1294
The ŒñRomance sans paroles dí©dií©e íæ Mlle. Lise ChristianiŒî Œ_ thus described in the surviving autograph Œ_ was only published as op. 109 from the composerŒÍs estate in 1868. The French cellist Lise Christiani gave several concerts in Leipzig in October 1845, where she met with Mendelssohn and presumably commissioned him to write this charming work. It is the only ŒñSong without wordsŒî that Mendelssohn wrote for two instruments, not piano solo. It was previously only available as part of a collection of works for this instrumentation (HN 669). However, the ŒñRomance sans parolesŒî, a favourite with cellists, is now also available as a single Henle Urtext edition.
