Jakob Ludwig Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809 – 1847), born and widely known as Felix Mendelssohn, was a German composer, pianist, organist and conductor of the early romantic period. Mendelssohn wrote symphonies, concertos, oratorios, piano music and chamber music. His best-known works include his Overture and incidental music for A Midsummer Night's Dream, the Italian Symphony, the Scottish Symphony, the overture The Hebrides, his mature Violin Concerto, and his String Octet. His Songs Without Words are his most famous solo piano compositions. After a long period of relative denigration due to changing musical tastes and antisemitism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, his creative originality has been re-evaluated. He is now among the most popular composers of the romantic era.

The eight volumes of Songs Without Words, each consisting of six "songs" (Lieder), were written at various points throughout Mendelssohn's life, and were published separately. The piano became increasingly popular in Europe during the early nineteenth century, when it became a standard item in many middle-class households. The pieces are within the grasp of pianists of various abilities and this undoubtedly contributed to their popularity. This great popularity has caused many critics to under-rate their musical value. He composed Book 4 (Opus 53) between 1839–41

Book III is a collection of miniatures containing some of the composer's most lyrical and songful piano pieces:

"The Evening Star" (Con Moto). The title was not given by Mendelssohn, but by Steven Heller. The song fails to inspire, and lacks character. It continues through in a sweet and always warm voice. It fails to climax at any given point, but continues to hold the same rhythm and stride throughout the entire song. It does carry the ability to relax, but never sways, and goes directly into the final diminuendo.

"Lost Happiness" (Allegro non troppo). This is an attractive piece. There are three distinctive voices heard as melody, bass, and accompaniment. Each voice receiving a turn, as the others fade in the background as the quiet voices. It does have a theme of repetition and comes across as weak.

"The Poets Harp" (Presto e molto vivace). Technically, this piece requires practice with the sustain pedal. It's a bright and cheerful song that is a pleasure to play. Its quickness allows more of the melody to come through, and in its end, makes it equally enjoyable to listen to.

"Hope" (Andante) is more of a choral style, as it offers no assistance of an accompaniment. The Voices are all heard evenly, and sung in time to the chords. No. 4 in book 1, as well as no 3. In book 2 seem so familiar to this piece. It's a colorful song, but lacks luster.

"Passion"(Agitato). Extremely well represented. With each emotion that Mendelssohn dictates, the harmony of the key changes. Grief for example is met with the minor key. At certain points, the piece explodes and then is subdued. Technically, the high end of the right hand carries the melody. At the same time, the left hand is in constant use as Staccato notes dot the bass lines. The bass lines meld the song together to create this masterpiece.

"Duet" (Andante con moto). Two voices are continually heard speaking back and forth as though in a casual conversation. At times, the voices meld together as if in agreement. Although this is certainly one of Mendelssohn's greater compositions, it was later that he was able to improve this piece with Prelude in A Flat. Considered to be a love song as Felix composed this soon after meeting his soon to be wife, Cecile.
