Notes & Reviews:

One of the best-kept secrets of chamber music, Beethoven's 'String Quintet in C major, Op. 29', was written between the well-known "early" and "middle" string quartets. This strangely neglected masterpiece of startling originality is coupled here with Beethoven's own transcription for string quintet of his early 'Piano Trio in C minor' and the 'Fugue in D major', a musical curiosity written as an inducement to his publisher to make fewer printing errors. The Fine Arts Quartet has made many highly acclaimed Naxos recordings.

"The enlarged Fine Arts Quartet delivers a strongly committed performance of this work, supported by a beautifully balanced but clear recording." -BBC Music Magazine

"The Fine Arts Quartet play beautifully...these performances present a beguiling portrait." -Gramophone, October 2010
