Felix Mendelssohn: String Quartet No. 2 In A Minor Op. 13 - 3. Intermezzo By Arod Quartet
The third movement of one of Mendelssohn’s principle quartet works
The third movement of Mendelssohn’s Quartet No. 2 is a moody section with minor passages, illustrated by staccato strings and low sweeping cello bass part. A slow section within the movement hosts a set of chords akin to that of a chamber dance. A titanous composer for all forms, Mendelssohn is distinguished by his ability to summon different techniques from across the compositional spectrum. Hear this melodic movement now!
