This is a classical piano music pack that consists of three romantic piano pieces from various composers.
Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy-Venetian Gondola Song Op 62 No 5
Venetian Gondola Song is the fifth of Songs Without Words, Opus 62 by famous German composer Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy. Songs Without Words is a series of short lyrical piano pieces in eight books, each consisting of six songs. They were part of the Romantic tradition of writing short lyrical pieces for the piano. Although Song Without Words seems to be Felix Mendelssohn’s own invention. This Venetian Gondola Song is in the fifth book (Opus 62) that was dedicated to Clara Schumann. Like all other Venetian Gondola Songs in other books, it has nice rhythmic arpeggios that depict the rocking motion of a boat and a beautiful romantic melody in A minor.
Robert Schumann-Almost Too Serious
Almost Too Serious is the tenth of thirteen pieces of Scenes from Childhood, Opus 15 by famous German composer Robert Schumann. Schumann wrote 30 movements for this work, but chose 13 for the final version. Almost Too Serious is in G sharp minor. Its flowing melody over syncopated arpeggios gives it a nostalgic mood.
Erik Satie-Gnossienne No 5
This is the fifth Gnossienne that was composed by the French composer Erik Satie in 1891. Although it was not titled as Gnossienne like the original three, it is known as Gnossienne No. 5. This is probably the first composition after the 1888 Gymnopedies and it is somewhat uncharacteristic of the other Gnossiennes not only its upbeat style, rhythms and less exotic chordal structures, but also in its use of time signatures and bar divisions. It is in G Major key but like all of his other works, Satie used transpositions in repetitive sections.
All three pieces were played on a Steinway concert piano and recorded with a calm and steady tempo to fit your projects perfectly. They are suitable for any of your projects needing soft solo piano music.
