Romantic chamber music

Mendelssohn, Schumann & Jadassohn:

  • Piano Quartets

A lot of Germany’s 19th century musical history can be attributed to the three composers on this CD: Certainly Mendelssohn, Schumann and Brahms immediately come to mind; but composer Salomon Jadassohn (1831-1902) is yet another composer of these times. He gave us a rarely-performed piano quartet that is also rooted in the classic and romantic era.

The specific selections are:


  • Piano Quartet in C minor, Op. 77


  • Piano Quartet No.2 in F minor, Op.2


  • Piano Quartet in E flat major, Op. 47

Performed by the Leipzig Piano Quartet

The Leipzig Piano Quartet has more than 10 years of experience performing together. All four members are deeply rooted in Leipzig’s contemporary music scene; three of them are members of the historic Gewandhaus Orchestra of Leipzig

Here is the Leipzig string quartet, playing the second movement from Schubert’s d-minor quartet “Death and the Maiden”



And here’s the Leipzig String Quartet in Dvorák’s op. 96 “American” quartet, the second movement (great music!)
