One of today's most dynamic and exciting ensembles, the Pacifica Quartet celebrates its 10th anniversary with a three-CD set of Mendelssohn's complete string quartet cycle. Known for its "stunningly expressive performances" (The Guardian) and "ideal balance" (Washington Post), the youthful Pacifica is a perfect match for this early Romantic composer's exuberant chamber music.

"10/10 - A big, warm sound--wonderfully well blended, rounded, and full. . . . Sonics are just about perfect--tonally accurate, well-blended and balanced, with the vivid presence that makes you feel these magnificent players are in the room with you. At three discs for the price of two, this Cedille release is something of a bargain as well. To sum this set up in two words: 'Buy it'."
