This week's CD of the Week on Classical 90.5 is the new release from the Toronto-based Cecilia String Quartet.

For their latest release the quartet focuses on a pair of string quartets that Felix Mendelssohn wrote in 1838 while honeymooning in Germany's Black Forest. Trevor Harris recently interviewed the quartet's cellist Rachel Desoer. They talked about working on your honeymoon, the quartet's concerts for special needs students and how the group selects their concert and performance repertoire.
