Three revolutionary quintets.
Guest cellist Howard Penny joins Omega Ensemble in a performance of Schubert’s ultimate String Quintet in C major.
Scored unusually for two violins, viola and two cellos, and completed during the final weeks of Schubert’s life, the ‘Cello Quintet’ ranks among the composer’s greatest accomplishments.
Also included is Mendelssohn’s String Quintet No. 2 displaying some of the composers most dramatic and sober output, as well as British composer David Bruce’s Gumboots, for clarinet and string quartet – a contrastingly tender and delightful piece celebrating the joy of dance.
