Description: This fourth release under the auspices of the International Draeseke Society brings two late string quintets (the violotta was an invention of a Prof. Stelzner and did not survive the beginning of the 20th century - a cello takes its part in the A major quintet). Dating from 1897 and 1901 respectively, they are works generous in lyrical melodies with an air of melancholy and nostalgia often present although a Brahmsian fire still burns beneath the veneer of oncoming old age. Acantus String Quartet, Magdeburg, Johannes Hartmann (second cello).
