Classical moderation and Romantic sensitivity are the signatures for the music of Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy. Not, however, in an anachronistic, but in a progressive sense of the word, even transgressing boundaries: “Nobody can forbid me to take pleasure in this and to continue working on the legacy left to me by the great masters. After all, it is not the idea that each person has to start afresh from the beginning; however, the work should also carry on from where it left off in accordance with one’s creative powers, and not be solely an unimaginative repetition of what has been”, thus did he formulate his self-confident, aesthetic concept. And correspondingly, as most of his contemporaries including Franz Liszt agreed, he thus became one of the “most outstanding German composers” of the early 19th century

This must be one of the best discs of chamber music making I have ever heard and certainly one of the best recorded. It certainly completely eclipses all other versions of this wonderful music I have heard. Rarely has any chamber music sounded so lifelike.
The quality of the playing and the feeling is recalled of when I first heard Multichannel but I am now regularly “immersed” in beauty. So this is really something very special indeed. Tremendously exciting!
Do not hesitate – buy this for yourself and anyone you know who loves chamber music as, even in “plain” stereo, you & they will surely love it as much as I do.
