SCHUBERT, F.: String Quintet, D. 956 / String Trio, D. 581


String Trio in B-Flat Major, D. 581 ,

String Quintet in C Major, Op. 163, D. 956

Schubert’s String Trio was modelled after the example of Beethoven, and its transparent textures, Classical structure and fine interplay are capped by a charming Rondo finale. Composed over a decade later, during the period of his final illness, the String Quintet is wholly different in character. Scored for two violins, viola and two cellos, it is one of the most compelling and moving works in the chamber music canon, and stands as the summation of Schubert’s writing for chamber forces.
