Notes & Reviews:

Here's another incredibly valuable bargain from the Virgin "Veritas" line: two CDs for under $11.00! In collecting the chamber music for strings by the great composers, many listeners may have overlooked these superb works by Felix Mendelssohn. Well, here they are, in splendid sound, and beautiful, modern-instrument performances by Hausmusik of London. These performances are so fine, that even if you have other versions of these works, you can't miss at this price.
