Felix Mendelssohn: On Wings of Song, arranged for double bass and piano by Leon Bosch

With its languid melody and rippling accompaniment, the second of Mendelssohn’s Six Songs, op 34 is a setting of a poem by Heinrich Heine in which the poet transports his beloved, on wings of song, to a faraway land of lotus flowers. In this transcription for double bass and piano by Leon Bosch, the suggested bowings and fingerings are personal ones but have chosen to underline the essence of the music.
