In the spring of 2013 musicologist Ulrike Kiezle made an incredible discovery: she found the string quartet in C minor by Max Bruch, a youth work that had been presumed missing. Bruch submitted this quartet to the Mozartstiftung Frankfurt at the age of 14, in order to apply for a scholarship which he ultimately obtained.
In September 2014, the Munich Diogenes Quartet (www.diogenes-quartett.de) performed the world premiere of this opus in Frankfurt. The CD was just released by the label "Brilliant Classics".
With this release the Diogenes Quartet reaffirms its intention to publish lesser-known works. The four musicians have already devoted themselves with much engagement to the recordings of works by i.a. Gernsheim, Onslow and Fesca. At the same time the Quartet performs the greatest classics of string quartet, as for instance the complete works by Schubert, which they lately recorded and received great acclaim for.
I hope to have raised your interest and would be happy to send you the newly released CD. Maybe you could write a review about this so far unknown string quartet and the engagement of these four dedicated musicians.
With my warmest regards,
Marie Christin de Forestier
