Felix Mendelssohn: String Quartets Nr. 2 Op. 13 & Nr. 3 Op. 44, 1

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
At the age of 18, Felix Mendelssohn composed his String Quartet Op. 13, one of
his major early works. The fact that it was written after Beethoven’s death reveals
a wealth of references: the youthful master experimented blithely with form and
content. The Quartet also has an autobiographical component going back to the
song “Frage” (“Question”), the beginning of which (underlaid with the question “Ist
es wahr?” – “Is it true?”) provides the motto of the first movement and returns
toward the end of the finale – a very personal message from Mendelssohn.
The Quartet Op. 44/1 was written during a period of infatuation with Cécile
Jeanrenaud, whom he married in 1837. Here the mature mastery of the composer
is palpable; everything arises from his own intuition. He creates a fascinating
symbiosis of traditional classical form and romantic stylistics which is profoundly
his own and radiates great unity – in addition to a wealth of musical themes,
harmonic impulses, a songful, emotional slow movement and a rousing, virtuoso
scherzo and finale.
This music is performed with profound passion by the young musicians of the
Kazakh State String Quartet.
