Reference: 603 1840-2
Description: As with most of his compositions, these quartets are early, published as a pair in 1839 and dedicated to Mendelssohn who is also plainly the model for works full of earworm melodies, a zest and vigor typical of both composers' youthful pieces and enough plain old compositional talent to get excellent reviews from Schumann. Utrecht String Quartet.
