Another exhilarating debut on MDG from the Meccore String Quartet. The four instrumentalists have selected string quartets by Edvard Grieg forming the ideal medium for their vibrant style.

The distraught but magnificent Quartet in G minor, op.27, marks the epochal shift from romanticism to impressionism. Although Grieg’s second quartet remained unfinished, this circumstance does not impair the quality of the extant fragment. Moreover, on this SACD the Meccores compensate for the missing movements with a Fugue from the Norwegian master’s formative years.

Young, passionate, wild – the dynamic Meccore String Quartet based in Warsaw takes the performance stage by storm. Their practice of standing for performances rather than sitting can be fully appreciated here in the three dimensions of this high-resolution SACD from MDG.
