Felix Mendelssohn wrote six numbered string quartets, all published during his lifetime: String Quartet No. 1 in E♭ major, Op. 12 composed in 1829. String Quartet No. 2 in A minor, Op. 13 composed in 1827. 3 in D major, Op. 44, No. 1 composed in 1838. 4 in E minor, Op. 2 composed in 1837. 5 in E♭ major, Op. 3 composed in 1838. 6 in F minor, Op. 80 composed in 1847.

Finally, Mendelssohn's string quartets are hitting the big time. Over the past decade, there have been more and, for the most part, better recordings of his quartets that at any time in history. Think of the Alban Berg Quartet's brilliantly bracing recording or the Quatuor Mosaïques' fervently soulful recording. Unfortunately, the Eroica Quartet's playing lacks the depth and warmth of the Quatuor Mosaïques' and its performances lack the rigor and strength of the Alban Berg Quartet. While there are many winning things about the Eroica's interpretations - the graceful lightness of the E flat quartet's Scherzo or the affecting intensity of the F minor quartet's Adagio - too often the ensemble's interpretations seem only superficially impressive and only fleetingly moving. Of course, there have also been some fairly mediocre recordings - think of the Emerson's recklessly energetic recording - and merely passable recordings - think of the Henschel's hastily enthusiastic recording.

Members: David Watkin, Gustav Clarkson, Lucy Howard, Peter Hanson, Vicci Wardman.
