Schubert's Quintet: ACO StudioCasts
ACO StudioCasts Collection • 59m
Schubert’s career was marked by admiration for Beethoven and his desire to match the heights achieved by his hero. In his “perfect” Quintet, possibly the best longform piece of chamber music ever written, he achieved that goal.
Composed in the final weeks of his far-too-short life, the writing is symphonic, alluding to far more harmonic colours and textures than had ever been thought possible for an ensemble of this size.
Featuring a star-studded ACO ensemble, this soulful journey through sadness, fear, contemplation and joy is the intimate and the grand brilliantly merged.
