This week's free download is Felix Mendelssohn's Lied ohne Worte Op. 109, performed by cellist Johannes Moser and pianist Alasdair Beatson. It was recorded on the Pentatone label and was awarded four stars for both performance and recording in the December issue of BBC Music Magazine.

This piece for cello and piano was written around 1845 and was published posthumously. Surprisingly, it is not linked to the Songs without Words (Lieder ohne Worte) series of short piano pieces. The works performed on this disc - by both Felix and his sister Fanny - would have been performed at the Sunday Sessions at the Mendelssohn family home. Beatson performs here on an 1837 Érard piano.

'Johannes Moser and Alasdair Beatson offer fine, full-blooded performances of all this repertoire', writes our reviewer, Misha Donat. 'Altogether, a fine achievement, well recorded'.
