Mendelssohn revisited

I have been waiting for this for years: a recording of the Mendelssohn Quartets that does away with this music just being “beautiful” and “harmonious”, or in the German sense “buergerlich”. I always felt there is a strong undercurrent in his music that is as disturbing as in Schumann or Chopin’s great works, and finally here it is: the Quatuor AROD has done it. Just listened to the e-minor Quartet and that recording really ticked all boxes. Brooding, intense,restless, that one important side of Mendelssohn that is all too often ignored.Not to be missed !! Plus a short excerpt of the a-minor Quartet from you tube.
