This CD contains a World Premiere - the C minor Quartet by Max Bruch.
In 2013, an unknown quartet was discovered in the archives of the Mozart-Stiftung in Frankfurt. Further research made it clear that it was by the 14-year old Max Bruch. This fresh and spontaneous youth work clearly has its roots in the romantic tradition going back to Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Schubert and Schumann.
The well known String Quartets Op.9 and Op.10 are vintage Bruch: although not revolutionary in any sense, they abound in catchy romantic melodies, the warm sonorities and harmonies adding to the feel-good atmosphere.
These are excellent performances by the German Diogenes Quartet, who have already recorded successfully for Brilliant Classics - works by Gernsheim and a complete Schubert cycle.
Scholarly liner notes in both English and German are included in the booklet.
- Stefan Kirpal, Gundula Kirpal: violin
- Alba González i Becerra: viola
- Stephen Ristau: cello
