Notes and Editorial Reviews

Another exhilarating debut on MDG – with the Meccore String Quartet fresh breezes waft through the world of chamber music! The four instrumentalists have selected string quartets by Edvard Grieg forming the ideal medium for their vibrant style. The distraught but magnificent Quartet in G minor op. 27 marks the epochal shift from romanticism to impressionism. Although Grieg’s second quartet remained unfinished, this circumstance does not impair the quality of the extant fragment. Moreover, on this SACD the Meccores compensate for the missing movements with a fugue from the Norwegian master’s formative years.
