 The Gewandhaus Quartett celebrates its two hundredth anniversary in 2008 – making it the oldest string quartet in the world. The quartet stands for the very highest level of chamber music, a fact underlined by its worldwide success. 

 
With this album release the quartet presents the second volume of recordings of string quartets by Mendelssohn and Schumann (Volume 1 – order no. 60108): Mendelssohn‘s String Quartet in E-flat major op. 44 (1838) and Schumann’s String Quartet in A major op. 41 No. 3 (1842).
 
Both works enjoyed resounding success at their respective Gewandhaus premiere performances – Mendelssohn‘s quartet in 1838, Schumann’s quartet in 1848. This recording was made in 2006 in the Rathaussaal, Leipzig-Markkleeberg.
