Any top 25 list must include Felix Mendelssohn’s brilliant Octet for strings. It was his coming out piece at age 16, a work so fresh, so inspired, that in one fell swoop it added Mendelssohn to the ranks of history’s great composers. That same youthful energy is present in the remaining works; one is whimsical, one is comical, one is just wild!
