Complete Chamber Music for Strings in Full Score by Felix Mendelssohn

Puiblished by Dover

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847) is one of the most important German composers of the Romantic era. He was most comfortable composing in a charming, relatively conservative style influenced by the Classical period and free from many of the developing trends of the Romantic Era, while incorporating important innovations in many works. He also held a singular position in German musical life as the founder of the Leipzig Conservatory, a prominent conductor of the renowned Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, and a seminal figure in the revival of the music and legacy of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Mendelssohn's wrote many important chamber works for string players, from the masterful string quintets to the glittering, crowd-pleasing string octet, to his dark and dramatic sixth string quartet. The full scores to these and more are contained in this Dover budget collection.
