Notes & Reviews:

This re-release is one of CAPRICCIO's most famous recordings which has been remastered for optimal quality and offered at a special price. The first work chosen for this release is Johannes Brahms' String Quintet in G Major. The piece, scored for two violins, two violas, and cello, was intended to be the composer's last piece of music. The one movement string sextet Verklarte Nacht (Transfigured Night) is considered Schoenberg's earliest important work. The piece is inspired by Dehmel's poem of the same name, and was written in just three weeks.
