Info


This set of the String Quartets of Mendelssohn may prove to be the most lasting contribution the Emerson Quartet has yet made to the string quartet discography. While the Emerson has always been slightly out of its depth in the quartets of Bartók, Beethoven, and Shostakovich, in the quartets of Mendelssohn, the Emerson has met its match. This is not to disparage either the Emerson Quartet, much less Mendelssohn. The Emerson is easily the finest string quartet in contemporary America, a supple ensemble with a warm tone, a strong technique, and an expressive manner. The album, MENDELSSOHN: THE COMPLETE STRING QUARTETS went on to win 2 Grammy Awards, including Best Chamber Music Performance and Best Engineered Album for producer Da-Hong Seetoo featured. The Emerson String Quartet: Eugene Drucker Philip Mendelssohn wrote six numbered string quartets, all published during his lifetime: String Quartet No. 1 in E major, Op. 12 composed in 1829. String Quartet No. 2 in A minor, Op. 13 composed in 1827. 3 in D major, Op. 44, No. 1 composed in 1838. 4 in E minor, Op. 2 composed in 1837. 5 in E major, Op. 3 composed in 1838. 6 in F minor, Op. 80 composed in 1847. Mendelssohn's string quartets are very appealing, tuneful works that engage the listener completely. Chamber music was an important part of Mendelssohn's output and one does not gain a full picture of his growth as a composer by only being familiar with his orchestral works. This 4-CD set by the Emerson String Quartet brilliantly explores not only the six numbered quartets but includes the shorter Op. 81 works published after Mendelssohn's death, the student quartet written when the composer was 14 and the stunning Octet for strings.
