The Demmler Quartet, with Dietrich Hempel and Thomas Probst (violins), Maria Schöne (viola) and Jörg Ulrich Krah (cello), present string quartets from 450 years of musical history in Mecklenburg. Beginning with Thomas Mencken in the 16th century, a broad arch is stretched over Antonio Rosetti, Friedrich von Flotow and Richard Wagner into the 21st century and the Fantasia for String Quartet by the ensemble member Jörg Ulrich Krah.

The discovery of hitherto rather unknown musical treasures by these composers associated with Schwerin was just as much motivation for this CD as the challenge to present music from four completely different periods to a broader audience, taking the respective performance practice into account.
