Schubert’s Cello Quintet is a miracle of music; one of the last works that Schubert wrote, it holds an exalted place in the chamber music repertoire, and one cannot help but be awed by its mastery. Schubert’s quintet is accompanied by an elegant string quartet by the young Beethoven, and Grieg’s cello sonata, a vivid tone painting of the composer’s beloved homeland, Norway.
