Format: Audio CD
The New Zealand String Quartet is to be congratulated for an outstanding recording of Volume 3 of the Mendelssohn String Quartets. I found the quality, interpretations, and tempos, particularly of the Op. 44/1, very much to my liking and equal or better than other recordings.
In my opinion, many groups try to show that they can play Mendelssohn faster than the next group; thereby, they often lose some of the melodic beauty inherent in Mendelssohn's chamber music. Thanks to a combination of several factors, this group manages to keep these elements in excellent proportion. On the basis of this disc, I predict that the other volumes of this series should be equally rewarding. It is a worthy addition to one's music library.

Op. "0" is terrific! April 1 2013
By Arthur A Diefendorf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The performance of both quartets is quite good. And Opus "0" should be performed more often. It sound like Beethoven! I hope to own more works by the New Zealand Quartet before I'm through.
