Produkt anteckningar

Founded in 2005, the Escher String Quartet is still a young ensemble as string quartets go. It has nevertheless become established as one of the most exciting quartets around, both in it's home country, the U.S.A., and elsewhere, recently being shortlisted for a BBC Music Magazine Award. With their début disc on BIS, the Eschers launch a three-disc cycle of Mendelssohn's string quartets, including the unnumbered String Quartet in E flat major and - on coming instalments - the four pieces for string quartet Op.81. The quartet genre accompanied Mendelssohn throughout his life, from the previously mentioned E flat major quartet - which he composed at the age of 14 - to String Quartet No.6 in F minor, his last major work, completed only two months before his death in 1847. As a body, the quartets demonstrate many of Mendelssohn's finest qualities as a composer - his fascination for and understanding of the music of both Bach and Beethoven, his affinity for string instruments, and that gift for melody as well as texture which has made his Lieder ohne Worte and the elfin music to A Midsummer Night's Dream so eternally popular. Composed in 1829, the Quartet Op.12 is still an early work - from the time of the Hebrides Overture - while the E minor quartet, Op.44 No.2, can be counted as one of the first master-pieces by the mature composer.
