This CD includes three works by Max Bruch: his String Quartet in C minor Op. 9, his String Quartet in E major Op. 10, and for the first time ever recorded, his String Quartet in C minor Op. Posth. The well known quartets, Op. 9 and Op. 10, are charming works, indicative of the composers classic style. They contain warm sonorities and catchy melodies, creating a cheerful atmosphere. In 2013 a quartet was found in the Mozart-Stiftung in Frankfurt. After extensive research, it was discovered that the quartet was by a 14-year-old Bruch. The world premiere recording is featured here. Performing these works is the German Diogenes Quartet. English and German liner notes are included with this album.

The music world associates Humperdinck first and foremost with his fairy-tale operas. Chamber music accounts for only a relatively small portion of his oeuvre, but should not be underestimated in its importance. This release presents the String Quartets and première recording of the Piano Quintet. In the Piano Quintet especially, the catchy themes and its wonderfully melodious middle movement, represent a valuable contribution to late-romantic literature off the beaten track.

For over eight hundred years, philosophers—men and women—who called themselves Cynics, literally "dogs" in their language, roamed the streets and byways of the Hellenistic world, teaching strange ideas and practicing a bizarre way of life. Among them, the most important and distinctive was Diogenes of Sinope, who became the archetype of Classical Cynicism.

Le voyage en bottes de sept lieues qu’a entrepris le Quatuor Armida dans le royaume de la fugue commence avec l’œuvre allemande instrumentale la plus anciennement publiée, à savoir un recueil de 1602 du compositeur Valentin Hausmann. Les Fugae de Haussmann ayant été conçues « pour tous genres d’instruments », on ne s’étonnera guère que l’écriture ne soit pas particulièrement violonistique, une caractéristique qui se développera d’ailleurs bien plus tard au cours du XVIIe siècle.

Every string quartet dreams of having its own Mozart cycle: for its 10th anniversary in 2016, the Armida Quartet plans to perform all 23 works in public. The composer was part of each one of their lives long before the ensemble was formed. Playing in orchestras, in chamber music and in solo recitals, the Armida Quartet’s future members already got to know and love Mozart.

The Austrian violinist, teacher and composer Joseph Mayseder can be counted among the most well-known virtuosos in 19th-century Viennese musical life. He played under the baton of Haydn, Beethoven and Schubert and wrote an impressive number of own compositions. More than 900 printed editions of his works in European countries and abroad illustrate the popularity of Mayseder, which nonetheless over the decades seemed to vanish. The piano quartet around Raimund Lissy, member of the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra made it their business to bring to a broader audience the chamber music works of Mayeder.

The string quartets of Friedrich Theodor Fröhlich (1803-1836) form a unique contribution to Swiss early romanticism. He was the most promising young talent of Swiss romanticism, but when his musical activity failed to meet with recognition, he threw himself into the Aare on 16 October 1836. Fröhlich’s music is distinguished by refreshing and natural melodies, simplicity combined with compelling effects, and rich in emotional expression and unexpected harmonic modulations.
