Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Their radiant, virtuoso allegros and singing slow movements tinged with nostalgia are brilliant examples of the composer’s knack for eloquent musical communication. The Four Pieces for String Quartet were among Mendelssohn’s fi nal works. The acclaimed Zemlinsky Quartet bring out all the joys and sorrows present in these quartets.
