In autumn 1830 Mendelssohn Bartholdy visited Venice whilst on a great European tour and was intoxicated by his impressions. He said of the local gondoliers: “The gondoliers are now crying out to one another again, and the lights are reflected deep in the water- one is playing the guitar and singing. It is a merry night”. He composed these Venetian Gondala Songs as a result of that experience.
