Schubert: String Quintet; String Quartets

by Belcea Quartet Belcea Quartet




The Belcea Quartet has added three late masterpieces by Franz Schubert to their impressive discography on EMI Classics: the Quartet in D Minor "Death and the Maiden," the Quartet in G Major D887, and the sublime String Quintet in C Major with Valentin Erben of the Alban Berg Quartet as the second cellist.

The quartet has garnered praise for their take on Schubert. The New York Times recently stated, "In the Belcea's account [of 'Death and the Maiden'] the work seemed so formidable and emotionally complex that there was nothing more to say." With Valentine Erben, the Belcea Quartet brilliant Schubert release cannot be ignored. From the Label
