Notes & Reviews:

This CD includes three works by Max Bruch: his String Quartet in C minor Op. 9, his String Quartet in E major Op. 10, and for the first time ever recorded, his String Quartet in C minor Op. Posth. The well known quartets, Op. 9 and Op. 10, are charming works, indicative of the composer's classic style. They contain warm sonorities and catchy melodies, creating a cheerful atmosphere. In 2013 a quartet was found in the Mozart-Stiftung in Frankfurt. After extensive research, it was discovered that the quartet was by a 14-year-old Bruch. The world premiere recording is featured here. Performing these works is the German Diogenes Quartet. English and German liner notes are included with this album.

The Diogenes Quartet play with ardour and a symphonic sweep, with first violinist Stefan Kirpal's brilliant tone giving a high polish to Bruch's swirling passagework.
