Notes & Reviews:

All Music Guide
Among the finest Dutch period instrument musicians.

The prestigious Kuijken Quartet tackles one of the great masterpieces of Romantic chamber music on modern instruments, which is quite unusual for the group! During his lifetime Schubert was primarily known for his exceptional production of lieder. Much of his chamber music remained unknown, and was only revealed to the public later, by others (including Schumann and Brahms). One such piece is the String Quintet with two cellos, in C major, heard on this recording. It is a whim of fate that this exceptional work remained unknown for an entire generation after being written in 1828, just a few months before the composer's death.

Compelling ... another impressive achievement.
