Album Notes

Siblings Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn were close friends throughout their lives. Max Müller wrote that with Fanny, Felix “could speak or exchange whatever was uppermost or deepest in his heart.” Through the correspondence between the sister and brother, the idea was evolved of exchanging “Songs Without Words” as well as letters.
Robert Schumann’s nickname for his musical allies was “Davidsbűndler,” or “Tribe of David.” These included his wife Clara Schumann, their protégé Johannes Brahms, and Felix Mendelssohn. Sharing musical ideas and motives, they would write for each other as a form of wordless communication. Clara’s Romanze Op. 21 No. 1 was a present for Robert on his birthday, and decades after Robert’s death, Brahms wrote his Opus 119 Intermezzi for Clara as “your and my little pieces.” The “Davidsbündler” often wrote music with an intimate, human quality, inspired by the concept of “Innigkeit,” or “innermost tenderness.”
