Notes & Reviews:

Founded in 2010 by cellist Niklas Schmidt, "Fontenay Classics International" stands for fine chamber music, superior sound and exquisite design. FCI presents both young ensembles as well as recordings of Mr. Schmidt himself. Formed in 2005, and winners of several competitions, the Arcadia Quartet is establishing itself as one of the most exciting string quartets of their generation. Here they present Mendelssohn's String Quartet a minor op. 13 and Brahms' String Quartet a minor op. 51/2. "... exceptional sonority... impressive expressive power" - Ensemble Magazine
