Catalogue Number: 11M007
Reference: 777 252
Description: Two more chamber works which pay homage to the glorious past of Germanic Classicism (Mozart, Schubert, Mendelssohn and Brahms) with a 24-minute quartet and a more "heavenly length" quintet (its key plainly meant as an homage to Schubert) of 40 minutes from 1906. Minute felicities and oddities in the construction of each are more than covered in the dense, logorrheic notes; you won't miss a thing - even the really unimportant stuff! Sarastro Quartet, Petra Vahle (viola).
