Fanny Mendelssohn Quartet in E flat
Mozart Quartet in F K.590
Beethoven Quartet in E minor Op.59 No.2 Rasumovsky

Fit for a king: Mozart wrote his Quartet K.590 specially to impress the cello-playing King of Prussia – so he made sure that the cello has lots to do! Beethoven wrote his quartet for a Russian count – and Russian folksongs are woven into music that could be by no other composer. Fanny Mendelssohn didn’t get to mingle in such exalted circles, but from the inspiration and eloquence of her romantic Quartet in E flat, you’d never guess.
