Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The formation of the Berlin Philharmonic String Quintet is unique: Unlike other quintets, in which a normal string quartet consisting of two violins, viola and cello is augmented by either a second viola or a second cello, the additional instrument here is a double bass. The Philharmonic String Quintet goes beyond the conventional limits of a pure chamber-music ensemble - like the string quartet - to become a formation with symphonic dimensions. They now present Dvorak's String Quintet in G, Op. 77.

BBC Music Magazine
The Berlin Philharmonic Quintet performs superbly. The first movement has just the right sense of understatement, while they bring credible depth and vocal expressiveness to the slow movement. They develop an appropriately epic feeling in the finale, with its almost Sibelian first theme...The remaining two works on this slender issue are also, for the most part, beautifully judged.
