Harriet Smith
Gramophone, August 2012

The Specialist’s Guide To…Mendelssohn’s chamber music: #10

The Sextet, scored for violin, two violas, cello, double bass and piano, predates the Octet by a year and offers a fascinating reflection of where Mendelssohn’s preoccupations lay at this time. You can trace his musical roots, be it Weber in the bubblingly extrovert finale, or Hummel, Moscheles and Kalkbrenner in the virtuosity of the piano-writing. The performers here combine considerable dexterity where needed with warmth in the touching Adagio. © 2012 Gramophone
