Notes & Reviews:

The second volume of "Mendelssohn - Complete Chamber Music for Strings" is dedicated to compositions from the last third of the composer's life, which span a mere ten years but display a vastly different composer: Opp. 44 the well-known, mature, formal and tonal voice; Op. 80 a raw, tormented cry from the last months of his life.

Sunday Times, November 2012
The molto allegro vivace [of Op. 44 No. 1] begins like a pale echo of the great octet's similar opening. The outstanding Mandelring Quartett, however, play both it and the E minor with the utmost conviction, and their account of Op 80 does justice to that harrowing expression of Mendelssohn's despair at the death of his beloved sister Fanny.
