Fanny Mendelssohn Quartet in E flat
(Hensel)
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.
