Notes & Reviews:

A person is contemplating the meaninglessness of his existence. The despair over this and many other experiences results in a piece for five strings. Musicians love no other world-famous piece quite as dearly as Franz Schubert's C major String Quintet, D956. This recording, featuring the Auryn Quartet and Christian Poltera, received numerous prizes including the quarterly list of the Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik (prize of German record reviewers). It was first published on CD, LP and DVD-Audio and now also on Blu-ray Audio Disc.
