String Quintets, Op. 18 and 87

By Felix Bartholdy Mendelssohn

Detailed Description

String Quintets, Op. 18 and 87 (Set of Parts). Composed by Felix Bartholdy Mendelssohn (1809-1847). Edited by Ernst Herttrich. For String Quintet (Parts). Henle Music Folios. Softcover. G. Henle #HN908. Published by G. Henle (HL.51480908).

The genesis of Mendelssohn's string quintets is closely connected to his friend Eduard Rietz and the latter's brother Julius. Deeply affected by Eduard's death in 1832, Mendelssohn exchanged the “Minuetto” movement in his A major Quintet op. 18, written six years previously, for a newly composed adagio. It was in this form that the work was fi nally sent to the publisher. The Quintet in B flat major was only published after Mendelssohn's death; numerous, unauthorized entries by Julius Rietz thus found their way into performance practice.
