The String Quartet in E-flat major is an early work composed by Felix Mendelssohn in 1823 but not published until 1879. The quartet was not assigned an opus number and is not numbered.


Like all of Mendelssohn's string quartets, this work has four movements:

  1. Allegro moderato
  2. Adagio non troppo
  3. Menuetto and Trio
  4. Fuga

A typical performance lasts just under 25 minutes.
