The Danish String Quartet’s Grammy-nominated Prism project, linking Bach fugues, Beethoven quartets and works by later masters, receives its fourth installment. The penultimate volume of the series combines Bach’s Fugue in G minor from the Well-Tempered Clavier (in the arrangement by Viennese composer Emanuel Aloys Förster) with Beethoven’s String Quartet Op. 132 and Felix Mendelssohn’s String Quartet No.2 (composed in 1827). As Paul Griffiths observes in the liner notes, these pieces “sound all the more remarkable for the exquisite brilliance and precision of the Danish players”. Recorded in the historic Reitstadel Neumarkt.
