Immortal Schubert
Oct 23

There are few works in all of music which command the awe and affection of Schubert’s Cello Quintet. Written at a feverish pace as the 31-year-old composer neared death, the quintet’s mesmerizing transcendence has made it an essential listening ritual for music lovers. Inspired by Schubert’s immortal creation, Bruce Adolphe offers a deeply-felt cello quintet, preceded by the first of six landmark string quintets by Mozart.

Mozart | Quintet in B-flat major for Two Violins, Two Violas, and Cello, K. 174 (1773)
Adolphe | Are there not a thousand forms of sorrow for Two Violins, Viola, and Two Cellos (2017) (CMS Co-Commission)
Schubert | Quintet in C major for Two Violins, Viola, and Two Cellos, D. 956, Op. 163 (1828)

Sean Lee, Arnaud Sussmann, violin
Mark Holloway, Matthew Lipman, viola
Clive Greensmith, David Requiro, cello
