Notes & Reviews:

On this disc the Alcan Quartet performs the f-minor quartet along with such lighter works as the excerpts from the Four Pieces, Op. 81, assembled by a publisher two years after Mendelssohn's death. The Quintet No. 2 was written during a period of relative calm. The Alcan Quartet, founded in 1989, is active in Canada and internationally. The Quartet's originality, contagious enthusiasm, unique sonority and remarkable cohesion have all contributed to its success. They are joined for the Quintet by Canada's acclaimed viola soloist Steven Dann.
