Notes & Reviews:

The Demmler Quartet, Dietrich Hempel and Thomas Probst, violins, Maria Schöne, viola, and Jörg Ulrich Krah, cello, present string quartets from 450 years of Mecklenburg musical history. Beginning with Thomas Mencken in the 16th c., a broad arch is stretched over A. Rosetti, Friedrich von Flotow and Wagner into the 21st c. and the Fantasia for String Quartet by ensemble member Jörg Ulrich Krah. Besides the great works for string quartet the young ensemble regularly presents works in expanded instrumentation as well as more rarely played composers whose oeuvre has still to be discovered.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The Demmler players have a fine sense of Renaissance style in Mencken's fantasia. Rosetti's quartet, which sounds like minor Mozart (very!) has lots of spirit and good humor, as does the Flotow quartet. Wagner's song (from the Wesendonk Lieder) has been arranged by Reinhard Lippert. It sounds fine and the strings have expressive abilities.
