Format: Audio CD
Naxos's house quartet, the Kodály Quartet, seems to be recording everything ever written for string quartet. They've already recorded the complete Haydn, Beethoven, Debussy and Ravel quartets. And this is the fifth of six Schubert Quartet CDs to be released.
This disc contains early Schubert--Quartets 2 (1812), 6 (1813) and 11 (1816), all written when he was in his teens; he was born in 1797. Indeed the Second was written before chorister Schubert's voice had changed! They do not sound like echt Schubert--more like Mozart or sometimes even a little like Rossini. Still, they are clever imitations and certainly show us how talented Schubert was as a youngster. And what a hard worker he was.
There is not an awkward moment in any of these pieces, and indeed I can even imagine Mozart or Haydn might have been glad to claim them as their own. I particularly like the sprightly rondo finale of Quartet No. 11, the slow movement of No. 2 (a siciliano), and the courtly minuet of No. 6.
All are played with a passion and musicianly nuance by the Kodály Quartet who certainly do NOT sound like they are simply playing through what might have been discounted by some to be apprentice works. Frankly, I am happy to have the first five volumes--plus another containing the Quintet in C--and look forward obtaining the last in the series.
Naxos provides clear and lifelike sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars Early works of varying quality but well played and well recorded 3 July 2014
By John J. Puccio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Austrian composer Franz Schubert (1797-1828) wrote fifteen consecutively numbered quartets, most of them while he was in his teens, and every few years we get a complete set of them, each set seemingly as good or better than the last. This is among the least-expensive sets I've found, and it's among the best. Each disc in the seven Naxos volumes contains two or three works, this one three: the String Quartet No. 2 in C major, D. 32; the String Quartet No 6 in D major, D. 74; and the String Quartet No. 11 in E major, D. 353. They are early works, as I say, and not among Schubert's finest, yet they are engaging and full of the promise of better things to come.

Of the three pieces represented here, it is the first on the agenda, No. 6, that wins my vote. It is by far the lightest, most cheerful, most lyrical of the group, and it serves to remind us why Schubert was so proficient at producing hundreds of songs in his short thirty-one year lifetime. The playing of the Kodaly Quartet is confident, lively, lilting, and thoroughly delightful. Moreover, they are sensitive and lyrical when the occasion demands, giving us the best of all possible worlds.

Concerning the other couple of pieces on the disc, No. 2 may be of interest largely because it was only just recently reassembled in modern times, 1954, but it really was not of much interest to me personally, being a bit too bleak in outlook. Schubert wrote it at a time when he was in his mid teens and had just lost his mother, and the effect of the circumstance may have influenced his mood. Not that a melancholy mood is bad, mind you, just not what I was looking for at the time my listening. Of the remaining piece, No. 11, it is the two inner movements, the Andante and Minuetto, that stand out for their felicitous, purely Schubertian charm.

Naxos provide the Kodaly players a most hospital sonic environment in this 2003 recording, spreading the instruments across the sound stage in wide but still fairly natural balance, with clear definition and a sweet but not too prominently reverberant ambience. Anyway, for No 6 alone, the disc is worth its relatively modest asking price.
