Quatuor Ebène: Mendelssohn "Felix & Fanny"

In a characteristically imaginative stroke of programming, the Quatuor Ebène presents a total of three quartets by two Mendelssohns: Felix and his older sister, Fanny.

"Felix's quartets speak with intimacy, but are not devoid of violent, stormy emotion," says Raphaël Merlin of the Quatuor Ebène. He praises Fanny for composing "with surprising freedom", saying "we fell in love with her string quartet".
