Notes & Reviews:

This debut album includes string quartets by German siblings, Felix and Fanny Mendelssohn, performed by the internationally acclaimed Merel Quartet. Genuin's opening release to their Artist Consort series features a quartet filled with the anguish of Felix' sisters death and acknowledges Fanny's unjustly forgotten early E-flat quartet.
