Notes & Reviews:

Felix Mendelssohn's Lieder ohne Worte (Songs Without Words), comprising 8 volumes and 48 individual works, are delightful solo piano miniatures that, although not so intended by the composer in most instances, have come to embody certain descriptive characteristics of people, places or things with the help of publisher's attaching names to some after-the-fact. Michael Endres award-winning (Diapason d'or; Choc du Musique) discography is an extensive one, amounting to 30 albums; for OehmsClassics he has recorded works of Schumann, Schubert, Weber, Ravel and Gershwin, among others.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
German pianist Michael Endres has already given us superlative recordings of Mozart and Bax. To these he now adds Mendelssohn and does so with great distinction. Of benefit to all is the beautiful, clean piano sound supplied by the engineers. We are fairly close to the piano. There is variety. Endres, while supple and most sensitive in the slower pieces, brings more drama and tension than usual to the rapid ones. While expressive, he never fawns over the music, as is the tendency of some pianists.
