    orchestrated Adagio - do you guess the original work ?

    Recently I was so moved by a wonderful chamber music piece that I tried to orchestrate it as I have done it with other pieces before. Do you recognise it? If not - who may be the composer? For me it is one of the most expressive Adagios I know

    Enjoy it ...

    Hello Gerd,
    Nice to hear your work again. All of us on this Forum (hopefully) improving as years go by, but you have my admiration for how much and how quickly your work has improved, and this piece is really beautiful work.
    I would not dare to guess the composer, and hope you'll reveal it later. Again, beautiful, thanks for posting it.

    Hi Gerd,

    I tried to guess but came no further than late classical, beginning romantic era (a young Beethoven? An old Haydn...?)

    Any way, a very lovely piece well performed by Gerd Prengel.

    Well, it is Mendelssohn's 6th string quartett in f-minor from 1847, for me one of the greatest chamber music pieces after the time of Beethoven and Schubert. It is considered as the Requiem for his died sister Fanny and would be also his own, because he died soon afterwards with an tragic age of 38 . Every movement is outstanding, but in particular this Adagio has moved me.
    I think it fits very well in the garment of an symphonic Adagio.
