In autumn 1830 Felix Mendelssohn visited Venice whilst on a great European tour and was intoxicated by his impressions. He said of the local gondoliers: “The gondoliers are now crying out to one another again, and the lights are reflected deep in the water; one is playing the guitar and singing. It is a merry night”.

Perhaps it was with this in mind that Mendelssohn wrote four Venetian Gondola Songs between 1830 and 1841 (published in Henle Urtext in the collected volumes HN 327 and 861). 

Henle are now publishing the four popular, easy-to-play and melodious pieces together in one volume, with a new preface by Ullrich Scheideler.

GB keen amateur pianist
Mendelsshon's Songs without Words are great for an intermediate pianist
There are only 4 pieces in this book. In fact all the Gondola Songs. I expected there to be many more.
