This review is from: Schubert: String Quintet D 956 (Audio CD)
Before choosing this recording I read a lot of reviews - it's one of my favourite chamber works so it had to be good. I was not disappointed. In some recordings the momentum - the 'big arcs' of the piece' - can be felt to 'sit down' rather, especially if individual players wallow in their own parts rather than supporting the flow of the whole. Here instead of heaviness there is poise and flow: the macro and the micro are beautifully balanced, the teamwork is impeccable, and repeated listening just adds to the pleasure.
