Notes & Reviews:

This new, 4-CD survey from Champs Hill Records explores the complete string quartet music of Felix and Fanny Mendelssohn in performances by ten different, young string quartet ensembles, each performing one quartet work apiece. Included in this set is a posthumously published work of Felix Mendelssohn composed when he was 14, twelve fugues for string quartet composed at age 12 and late works for string quartet never intended for a collection as such.
