Notes & Reviews:

First release in a new four-CD series devoted to Schubert's late and greatest chamber music. Performances use period instruments, reconstructing the sound Schubert's own time. Quartet is led by Jaap Schroder, one of the legends of historical performance practice, and one of the greatest violinists of our day. Schubert's G major Quartet, D. 887, represents the high point of quartet-writing of the first three decades of the 19th century. Booklet text in English and Icelandic.
