Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This album is part of a series of twenty must-have titles from the Warner Classics catalog, featuring their original and well-known iconic covers. The quintessentially Viennese spirit of Schubert is captured in these performances, recorded live at the Vienna Konzerthaus, by the Alban Berg Quartet, whose members were all nurtured in the city's musical tradition. While relishing the scope of Schubert's often daring musical designs, they bring an intimate understanding of the composer's mercurial shifts of emotion.
