The Eroica Quartet joins with Resonus Classics to present the world's first complete recording of the original Mendelssohn Octet. This is what the young composer actually wrote in 1825. He later edited large parts of it before publishing.

Played on period instruments and with fingerings and bowings specific to the time, the legacy and influence Mendelssohn gained from his teacher Beethoven, is clear. This edition is immensely expressive and more indulgent than the revisions penned by the more mature, older man that he was seven years later.
