Notes & Reviews:

August Klughardt chose an interesting path that long remained unexplored among all the highways and byways of nineteenth-century music history.

Klughardt is not one to be assigned to this or that musical camp. Although he was greatly influenced by an encounter with Franz Liszt in Weimar while serving as a conductor and his enthusiasm for Richard Wagner's music is also documented, he always maintained his independence. His diversity is also attested in his chamber music. Apart from rarities, Klughardt always availed himself of various ensembles ranging from the piano trio through the string quartet, quintet, and sextet to the piano quintet as recorded here.

Since its founding in 1988 the Leipzig String Quartet has released almost seventy CDs exclusively on MDG. The spectrum covered by these discs highly acclaimed by the critics and public alike ranges from Mozart to Cage and from Weill to Beethoven and includes complete recordings of the quartets of Brahms, Mendelssohn, Mozart and of all the members of the Second Viennese School.
