Notes & Reviews:

Anton Bruckner's 'String Quintet in F major' was composed at the suggestion of the famous Viennese violinist Joseph Hellmesberger. Contemporaneous with his 'Fifth' and 'Sixth Symphonies', it is a deftly written Romantic work, symphonic in scale but intimate in character, whose 'Adagio' expresses an almost unbearable bliss. Composed in 1862, though rediscovered only decades after his death, the 'String Quartet in C minor' brings into play Bruckner's love of Bach and admiration for Schubert while pointing towards his own later symphonic style.

"These pieces reveal important aspects of his development, for in them are found many of the same harmonic innovations and thematic devices that are more fully realized in the symphonies. The Fine Arts Quartet and violist Gil Sharon have recorded fully sympathetic and technically exquisite performances, and their reading of the string quintet is clearly the most engaging and revelatory of this disc. Naxos provides warm and resonant sound, with reasonably close microphone placement." -All Music Guide
