4.0 out of 5 stars Mendelssohn's string quartets: lyricism, grit and vigor January 31, 2014
Format:Audio CD
For anyone who loves string quartets, Mendelssohn's six (not counting a juvenile one) are worth having and listening to many times. From two early quartets (Opp. 12 & 13) when a youthful Mendelssohn was influenced by composers before him, especially Beethoven in Op. 13, to the later three of Op. 44 where he found his own voice, and the final quartet (Op. 80), an expression of deep pain brought about by the sudden death of his older sister, these works deserve more attention than they have received. The only question here is how well the Cherubini Quartet performs them. The contrast of the lyricism of some episodes with the grit and vigor of others is an appealing feature of the recordings. Where it performs lyrical sections, possibly best represented by the canzonetta (second movement) of Op. 12, the ensemble plays at its fluid best, with a dulcet first violin often leading and adding charm to this beautiful work. In tense or climactic passages, the Cherubini players impress with their vigorous approach; the strings take on a gritty sound, one that is particularly suited, for example, to the harsh, agonizing reality evoked by Op. 80. There is nothing tentative about the performances. They should put to rest the disparaging idea started by Wagner and Liszt that Mendelssohn's music was conformist and unimaginative. With freedom and gusto, the Cherubinis have conveyed their own ideas on how to play these quartets.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well played, excellent music May 12, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Felix Mendelssohn has long been one of my favorite composers and the very first symphony I really liked was his Italian Symphony. Until recently, I did not know he wrote string quartets. Since I also like sting quartets, I bought this set to listen. I really enjoyed the listening and will listen often. These cover a wide range of time and style, but I like them all. I rate 4 of 5 stars, since even though I have no issues at all, there is nothing that stands out and captures me in the moment. They are just simply fine performances.
