內容簡介


Felix Mendelssohn did not write his six mature string quartets continually, but instead at
particular pivotal points in his life and compositional career. In his youth, studying Bach and
Beethoven proved to be fruitful, and later in life he was inspired by the exceptional violinist
Ferdinand David to write his three Quartets Op. 44 between 1837 and 1839 (represented
on this SACD by the final work in E flat major). They document the mature, formally assured
Mendelssohn who sums up his instrumental writing: brilliantly composed (particularly for David’s violin), full of
colour and formal attractions, romantic in their conduct.
After completing his Quartet Op. 80 (contained in the second volume of the complete recording),
Mendelssohn had not much time left to revisit and renew the string quartet. Two single surviving movements –
a tenderly transfigured, but also irascible, Andante with five variations and a whispering Scherzo – were integrated
into Op. 81 after Mendelssohn’s death. To Mendelssohn admirers, this Scherzo is faintly reminiscent
of the Scherzo in the Octet Op. 20 with which the sixteen-year-old Felix, in a coup de main, created a new
genre: “symphonic” chamber music where all “pianos and fortes need to be very precise and clearly separated
and more distinctly emphasised than it is normally the case with pieces of this genre.” The jubilant opening of
the octet, the romance-like Andante, the elastic, elf-like Scherzo and the rapid fugal finale – every movement
is proof of the resourcefulness and the youthful genius of this “lovely episode in German music”, as Friedrich
Nietzsche once referred to the composer Mendelssohn.
