This is the start of a new series dedicated to the seven String Quartets of Felix Mendelssohn in gripping interpretations by the Minguet Quartett. His second quartet was composed in 1827, the year of Beethoven’s death, and in it quite clearly drew on the tone and formal structures from the late composer’s String Quartet op. 132 without becoming his epigone. Mendelssohn’s Sixth Quartet, the highly expressive String Quartet in F minor op. 80, tells of his grief at the death of his sister.
