Description: Mendelssohnian charm and liveliness are the hallmarks in the 1863 sextet; odd that the "civilized conversation" of the trio from the same year seems like the work of an older man. Not otherwise available is the ten-minute original first movement of the sextet which is just as lively and inspiriting as its second try (it's not a matter of revision - this movement is completely different).
