Felix Mendelssohn Venetian Gondola Boat Song Op 30 No. 6

I love this piece, a ‘Song without words’. This is a good one to listen to when you study quietly. Check this out:

(Imagine the left hand of the pianist is playing the stream of Vienna River and you are on the boat in the music produced by the right hand of the pianist…… No words can describe how the feeling is like. Therefore, it is a song without words.)

When I heard this song I felt very soft and comfortable.I think it’s a good to solve our study pressure and help us to relax ourselves.

Comment by Gigi

Oh! It is a good song. A song that without words. The song is not difficult. It is easy to perform. But I was very relax and carried away by this song. The songs with words are good. But every song is very similar. This song is different from the song with words. Not only it does not have words or lyrics, I feel very smooth and relax. It is really a good song for you when you are studying very quietly. I like this very much.

What a good song!I agree that it must be good to hear when I am studying quietly.I think the melody is comfortable and it make me feel very peace.For studying, the first thing you have to do is to make your mind clear and your heart peace.In this song, I can imagine many things, but it didn’t make me feel annoying.

The song is very soft.But made me upset.I like the songs which is faster.It can make me excited.I think the girl in the video was very enjoy.Piano players Often close their eyes to enjoy listen their songs.But will they want to sleep?xd

Oh! You love this songm Mrs Boutellier?
I have played this song before! This is not diffcult to play, but if you want to describe the feeling, and make the atmosphere good enough, this is quite… a little complicated.
But this is just a grade 4’s song.(Piano)

Anyway, i think this song is quite boring. I do not like it very much. =]

Comment by Leung Ka Man,Carmen

Of course, this is a comfortable song. It is nice to listen it when I am sleeping. Although it is a bit boring. Also, I think this song is better to performce by violin. It can be softer.

The name of this song is really meaningful.:-)
I want to learn this song so much. The melody is really attractive.
It’s time for me to get back my piano. >v<

Comment by Christy (2C_16)

I like this song. It has a melody that can lead us to fall into the river(but not on the boat). I don’t like the song with words or voice because I think they are quite noisy. In the video, I learn how to enjoy music. Music is powerful!! It can wake me up and continue my works.

Comment by Kelvin 2c07
