14. Mendelssohn Lieder ohne Worte, Op.38- No. 2. Allegro non troppo in C minor
Today I am featuring Tom Thomson’s The West Wind as I continue to investigate the 1837-1838 Rebellions, which took place in both Canadas. The Rebellions of 1837-1938 constitute so defining a moment in Canadian history that I need to research these events very carefully.
Please enjoy The West Wind. Tom Thomson was associated with the Group of Seven‘s art and the Group of Seven’s art is a monument to Canada’s history.
My musical offering for today is Lied number 14 of Mendelssohn’s 49 Lieder ohne Worte (Songs without Words). It is played by Daniel Barenboim.
I chose the fourteenth Lied to mark an anniversary. A hundred years ago, on April 14, 1912, the seemingly invincible Titanic sank, reaping the lives of some 1,500 of its passengers. Ironically, Mendelssohn’s Lied is entitled Lost Happiness.
- Grey Day, by Tom Thomson
