Range Venetianisches Gondellied

Venetianisches Gondellied, a setting by Ferdinand Freiligrath, was composed by Felix Mendelssohn in 1842 and published in 1843. It is the fifth song of his song cycle, 6 Lieder.

1843, year where Mendelssohn finishes composing his song cycle, 6 Lieder Op. 57, appears to be, posteriorly, a lime stone in the composer’s life. Aged 34, he had settled in Leipzig a few year ago and is now a recognized musician. He chooses to open a music school, the Leipzig Conservatory where he teaches, while continuing to conduct and compose.
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.

Venetianisches Gondellied is the fifth song of his cycle 6 Lieder Op. 57. Mendelssohn had written a solo piano piece a few years earlier, also named venetianisches Gondellied. In this song, the constant 6/8 quaver bass, at the piano, seems to recall a kind of Barcarolle. The minor melody slides elegantly over the undulated accompaniment, mirroring the atmosphere of the mysterious night.
