|Emerson String Quartet Schubert String Quintet in C major Limited Vinyl LP
Schubert’s last great chamber work, his String Quartet in C of 1828 remained unperformed and unpublished for at least 20 years after his death. It is now regarded as one of the pinnacles of chamber music, and seen by performers as one of the great challenges to their artistry. It is by no means as dark a work as the G major Quartet, or 'Winterreise', and much of the writing shows the composer in a lighter mood, successfully combining weight, profundity, melodic charm with breath-taking technical assurance.
1. Allegro ma non troppo
3. Scherzo (Presto) - Trio (Andante sostenuto)
