String Quartets, Opp.12 & 13 (urtext, study score) by Felix Mendelssohn

Urtext edition by Ernst Herttrich. Published by Henle

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 first acknowledged string quartets, Op.12 & 13, were composed soon after the dissemination of Beethoven's late quartets. They show a strong influence of the older composer's mastery, as well as Mendelssohn's own growing prowess as a ''classical romantic''. This premium Henle urtext edition contains both quartets as well as critical commentary and historical background. Study score only. Advanced level, Grade 5.
