Notes & Reviews:

So far offered on four single SACDs, the present box now makes available the Felix Mendelssohn Complete Chamber Music for Strings edition in a four-disc boxed set. Winner's of numerous competition and German music press prizes, the Mandelring Quartet's trademark is its expressivity and homogeneity. The four individual musicians share a determination to seek out the innermost core of the music and confront musical truth, probing far beneath the surface to revealing complex meanings in music. At the same time, their approach to music is always both emotional and personal. "... The definitive set is complete." (Gramophone) "... This series must now be rated as a prime option of choice in these works... ." (Int'l Record Review) "... A fabulous last disc for an epochal Mendelssohn series." (pizzicato)
