In the last few years before he died of syphilis at the age of 31, Franz Schubert experienced one of the most prolific periods of creative genius humankind has ever seen. This quartet is one of the fruits of that period. In the first movement, Schubert develops a simple descending-scale motif into an intense outpouring of grief. The quartet takes its name from the theme of the second movement, a song which Schubert wrote when he was twenty. In its quartet incarnation, Schubert takes the simple melody through a whole range of moods, building to an impassioned frenzy and then relaxing.

Robert Cowan, Gramophone:
An early stereo recording that, in terms of instrumental placing, has an almost monaural sound image, features the Amadeus's Quartet in a highly dramatic 1959 account of Schubert's Death and the Maiden Quartet. DG's latest transfer is excellent and comes coupled with a stylish Trout Quintet where members of the Amadeus are joined by Emil Gilels and double-bassist Rainer Zepperitz.

When I learned this work, the piano part, this was the LP recording that I had as reference. So it is wonderful to have it in HD. Thank you!!!
Come to think of it, I believe they also recorded The Trout with Curzon. Curzon is very different and proved to be a great chamber pianist, who I followed for many years. Especially his César Franck Piano Quintet!!
