Felix Mendelssohn: 4 pieces Op. 81 By Arod Quartet
A playful collection of melodies
These lyrical works are urgent in their melodies and have many passages running up and down the scales, though they are dotted with peaceful and reflective moments, which give respite to the listener. Mendelssohn was known for his multidisciplinary composing style, mixing his knowledge of the organ, orchestra and piano to bring originality to his work.
