"Tous devient suspens" (Stephane Mallarmé Crise de Vers,
Song Without Words seeks to evoke the lyric spirit, a sense of timelessness, weightlessness, suspended animation and bittersweet nostalgia. Although it is written for a melodic instrument with piano accompaniment this piece has some formal and stylistic characteristics in common with the solo piano works Lied Ohne Worte written by Felix Mendelssohn between 1829 and 1845. It is short and features a melody with a gentle, unassuming piano accompaniment that becomes more expansive towards the end of the piece.
