For their first recording, the Arod Quartet has selected Mendelssohn, one of the pillars of the quartet's art, in particular his masterpiece, the Fourth Quartet in E Minor of June 1837 - more Mozartian than Beethovian in its structure and development, to be sure, even if it bears Mendelssohn's hallmark from the first note to the last. To find the influence of the deaf genius, we have to look in the Second Quartet Op. 13 of 1827, a work written shortly after Beethoven's death, the full extent of whose innovations Mendelssohn was only just discovering. The Arod Quartet continues its album with Four Pieces for Quartet, assembled posthumously and numbered Op. 81 by Mendelssohn's successor at the Gewandhaus, Julius Rietz, and based on four disparate pieces from various eras. Finally, the album closes with the Arod's re-interpretaton of a Lied, sung here by Marianne Crebassa, whose theme takes in several passages from Beethoven note for note, a real homage from the young composer to his illustrious elder. It’s worth noting that the Arod Quartet, only founded in 2013, has shot to global prominence, having performed at the Paris Philharmonic, the Louvre Auditorium, the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord, the Metz Arsenal, and further afield the Salzburg Mozarteum, the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Zurich Tonhalle, London's Wigmore Hall, as well as in Tokyo, Finland, Switzerland... the list goes on! © SM/Qobuz

So just who exactly is this mysterious Mathilde, whom this magnificent album by the Quatuor Arod is named after? She is a muse and her story is recounted to us through music. The sister of the composer Alexander von Zemlinsky, Mathilde was married to the painter and musician Arnold Schönberg. A whole community of avant-garde artists met each other through them, including Alban Berg, Anton Webern, Heinrich Jalowetz, Karl Horwitz, Erwin Stein and a young 23-year-old painter, Richard Gerstl, who pushes Schönberg towards painting and is taken under his wing. Everything shifted when Mathilde became Gerstl’s mistress, going back and forth between him and Schönberg, her legitimate husband. The love triangle ended tragically with Gerstl’s suicide: he hanged himself surrounded by his paintings. This unique story of friendship, love and death is bashfully told on this album through Webern’s Langsamer Satz, the Second Quartet by Zemlinsky and the Second Quartet with voices by Schönberg. Composed from poems by Stefan Georg, this last work is dedicated to Mathilde and here is sung by Elsa Dreisig. © François Hudry/Qobuz
