Mendelssohn, Spinnerlied



The great Russian pianist Emil Gilels was universally acclaimed for his
breathtaking performances of the most demanding concertos and most
challenging piano pieces of piano literature. But he was also a master of
the miniature form, and his "Songs Without Words" and other little pieces
by Mendelssohn, Schumann, Chopin, Grieg and others were nothing short of
mesmerizing. A specialist of the German repertoire, Gilels gave an all
German-Austrian program at the 1971 Carinthian Summer Festival in Austria,
where the "Spinnerlied" was recorded.
