Schubert: String Quintet / String Quartet D703

Label: Hyperion Cat. No.: CDA67864 Medium: CD No. Discs: 1

The matchless Takacs Quartet return to Schubert. Their first disc on Hyperion-his 'Death and the Maiden' and 'Rosamunde' quartets-received unprecedently lavish critical acclaim, acknowledging a new modern benchmark for these works.

Now they turn to perhaps the most hauntingly beautiful of all Schubert's chamber works, the String Quintet-completed six weeks before the composer's death. Schubert included a second cello in the texture, creating a sumptuously warm sound, a cradling intimacy. Here the Takacs players are joined by cellist Ralph Kirshbaum. Also recorded here is the 'Quartettsatz': a fragment-of the highest quality-of a String Quartet in C minor abandoned by the composer.
