String Quartets Opp.12, 44 (Nos. 1, 3-5) (parts) by Felix Mendelssohn

Published by International

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 string quartets trace his development as a composer. His String Quartet No. 1 in E-flat Major, Op.12 (1829) shows strong influences of Beethoven's late quartets, while Nos. 3-5 (Op.44, 1837) see him return to the immaculate classicism of Mozart and Haydn, helping establish his reputation as a ''classical romantic''. These quartets are presented together in this convenient International edition. Parts only. Advanced to master level, Grades 5-6.
