Enjoy this collection of masterful works for string trio and quartet. In this performance, Haydn, Rachmaninoff, and Reger's works, originally composed for other combinations of instruments, are performed by a string trio. A posthumous demand for Mendelssohn’s chamber works prompted the publisher Breitkopf and Härtel to create a string quartet by combining music that Mendelssohn had composed earlier. The result is his famous Four Pieces for String Quartet, op. 81.
