Notes & Reviews:

Arnold Mendelssohn's is the 2nd second cousin of Felix Mendelssohn and became best known as a composer of lieder. His sacred choral works launched the renewal of Lutheran church music. The German music encyclopedia MGG calls him "one of the most prominent figures of his day, a musician and man of great breadth of vision."

The Guardian, 17th January 2013
This well-made music is essentially late Romantic in style, with just occasional passages in which the harmonies loosen their grip on tonality, such as Reger or early Schoenberg...these performances by the Reinhold Quartet show that both works are worth hearing.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
II has variations on a plaintive melody. The voices are clearly laid out and distinguishable. The variations build impressively in motion and power. III is a congenial landler. IV, a rondo with lyric relief in a Bohemian vein, has the brevity of a master. Quartet 2 is more cheerful. II, an andante con moto beautifully extended and harmonized. The scherzo has an especially appealing trio tune.
