Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Austrian virtuoso Joseph Mayseder was during his lifetime (1789-1863) a much sought-after violinist, pedagogue and composer of Viennese musical life and shares with many of his contemporaries the common fate of fading away in public remembrance. While in his days over 900 editions of his works were published, it is hard to find any of them on today’s concert programs. The Mayseder Quartet with Raimund Lissy and Adela Frasineanu, violin, Robert Bauerstatter, viola and Othmar Müller, cello devotes itself to overcome this oblivion. The second volume of the complete edition of Mayseder’s chamber music presents the world premiere recordings of the string quartets No. 5 D major Op. 9 and No. 6 G major Op. 23. The joyful and in part Read more highly virtuoso works fail to provide an explanation for their long lasting negligence. Read less
