Range Auf Flügeln des Gesanges

Auf Flügeln des Gesanges , a setting by Heinrich Heine, was composed by Felix Mendelssohn between 1834 and 1837. It is the second song of his op.34, 6 Gesänge.

Mendelssohn wrote his most famous lied, Auf Flügeln des Gesanges, a few months after settling in Leipzig where he had just become director of the Gewandhaus Orchestra and Singakademie. He often spoke dearly of this period of his life and of how happy he was to settle in Leipzig after two difficult years in Düsseldorf.
It is interesting to compare Mendelssohn’s vision of art song with the ones of other German composers of the same period such as Schubert or Schumann. In comparison with Schubert, Mendelssohn is not so adamant on word painting and seems to focus more on broader scope harmonies and colors.
Auf Flügeln des Gesanges is the second lied of 6 Gesänge, Op.34. It sets the beautiful poem by Heinrich Heine, centered around a dreamlike, unreal vision of India (Hindustan). It is seamlessly built around regular arpeggios drifting from the left hand to the right endlessly while the vocal line gently wanders among the beautiful night garden described by Heinrich Heine. Structured around an AB form, the lied is remarkable for its simplicity
