Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Mendelssohn' musical precocity, both as a player and as a performer, manifested itself at a remarkably early age. In 1826, when he was only 17, Mendelssohn wrote not only his Overture to A Midsummer Night' Dream but the first of his two string quintets. T

Review

The performances from the Fine Arts Quartet are ideally suited to this kind of music. They tailor their sound perfectly to the very different demands of each movement and carry off the technical issues flawlessly: listen to the skilful double-stopping at the end of the first quintet's first movement. At no stage, however, does the music sound academic or pushed: the musicians work together as an integrated unit and listen to each other to "gel" seamlessly. I get the feeling that they really enjoyed making this disc. The Naxos sound is close in a warm acoustic, quite fitting for this music.

So unfamiliar as this repertoire is, it repays the effort in getting to know it, and one can hardly imagine these works being given a more sympathetic reading. -- MusicWeb-International, Simon Thompson, June 2008

The performances here by the Fine Arts Quartet, augmented with violist Danilo Rossi, are tight, lucid, energetic, and life affirming. The group has a forceful ensemble that can fly through the A major quintet's closing Allegro vivace, as well as it can tear through the B flat major quintet's closing Allegro molto vivace. But they also have an intensity and an emotional expressivity that make the most of the B flat major quintet's soulful central Adagio e lento. Also including the A major quintet's original third movement, this disc should be heard by anyone who enjoys Mendelssohn's music in general and his chamber music in particular. Naxos' sound is crisp and vivid, though it may be a bit close for some tastes. -- AllMusic.com, James Leonard, June 2008
