It is astonishing to think that Schubert’s final, majestic composition was not heard in public until 22 years after the composer’s death. Framed by lively outer movements that bear strong Gypsy influences, it is nevertheless the profound slow movement with its beauty, innocence and pathos that plucks at every heart.

“A hymn which floats above the mortal sphere.” –Mark Steinberg, violinist, on Schubert’s Quintet in C
