From the Publisher

With 48 compositions, the piano pieces under the title Songs without Words are amongst Mendelssohn Bartholdy's most popular compositions. Andreas Ottensamer has arranged ten of these works for clarinet and piano, letting the wind instrument take over the vocal, narrative melody part, supported by the keyboard instrument. In doing so, he creates a combination of faithfulness to the original and new sound possibilities through the authentically included clarinet in combination with a choice of movements. Pitch, timbre, and the instrument-specific characteristics convey the moods of the compositions, which range from emotional depth to light-hearted ease
