String Quintet D 956
- Apple Music
The string quintet with two cellos, a genre greatly favoured by Boccherini, was subsequently neglected by composers until Schubert composed his only string quintet in 1828, the year of his death – one of the great landmarks of music, regardless of period and genre.
This title was released for the first time in 1994.
