Notes and Editorial Reviews



Audite’s fourth volume of Felix Mendelssohn’s complete chamber music for strings sees the Mandelring Quartett championing a genre which has always been overshadowed by the noble string quartet: the quintet for two violins, two violas and cello. Twice Mendelssohn, first as a young genius and then later as an established musician, wrote for this combination – and twice he created magnificently sonorous, rousing masterworks.
