    Default Schubert's String Quintet D 956

    Last week, I received my copy of Schubert's String Quintet D 956 featuring the Emerson String Quartet w/ Mstislav Rostropovich on the 2nd cello.

    WOW! Fantastic! I've already listened to it a 1/2 dozen times over the last week.

    It's already jumped ahead of the "Death and The Maiden" string quartet as my favorite work by Schubert

    Lovely, isn't it? I think it's as good as chamber works get. Although, I have to confess a great admiration for two of Mozart's - K515 and K516.

    I've got the recording with the Cleveland Quartet w/Yo-Yo Ma. Beautiful piece, no doubt among my favorites.
