Mendelssohn: Octet for Strings, 1st movement

Performed by I Musici (14 minutes)

Felix Mendelssohn produced this warm and stirring music when he was only sixteen years old. Though Mendelssohn’s musical style never grew much beyond what you’ll hear in this piece, the artistic maturity in this music would be remarkable even for an aged master.
