»We welcome the fact that cpo has now taken up Gade’s chamber music: it is wonderfully written and does not deserve to disappear into the footnotes of music history writing. The MidVest Ensemble completely dedicates itself to Gade and on this perfectly balanced recording performs the works with an open naturalness displaying his music in a highly favorable light.« This is what FonoForum wrote in 2016 about Vol. 2 of our Gade recording series based on the new historical-critical complete edition of his works. The compositional history of many of these works is long and complicated because Gade often submitted his earlier works to later revisions. However, the little information we have about the composition of his Octet enables us to sketch the following picture: Gade began his work on it at the very latest in early 1848. Mendelssohn had died on 4 November 1847. In its style, overall form, and in various details Gade’s octet shares some elements with Mendelssohn’s octet. It is highly probable that Gade wanted to honor his late friend and colleague in this work, which prescribes the same instruments as the young Mendelssohn’s work from 1825. However, there is no absolute proof that Gade intended to compose a tribute to Mendelssohn. Gade’s first attempt in the genre of the string quartet is a single movement in A minor from January 1836. The movement has the character of a concert aria and attests to Gade’s fine dramatic sense when he was not yet twenty years old and to his talent for instrumentation. During 1839-40 Gade then worked on his String Quartet in F major. From the compositional journal that he kept during these years we may gather that the quartet should be regarded.
