BRUCKNER / SCHMIDT
Bruckner: String Quintet in F major / Schmidt: Piano Quintet in G major
Vienna Philharmonia Quintet with Eduard Mrazek (piano)

[ Decca Australian Eloquence / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 27 January 2006

"Recorded at the Sofiensaal, Vienna in 1974, the sound engineer Gordon Parry has provided a clear, warm and well balanced sound for both scores. The well written but uncredited annotation is concise, interesting and informative. Hidden gems of the late-Romantic chamber repertoire, marvellously performed and recorded. A thoroughly enjoyable release."
(MusicWeb March 2006)

One of Bruckner's most sublime Adagios is to be found in this String Quintet and a comparative rarity is his contemporary Franz Schmidt's G minor Piano Quintet. Long unavailable on Decca, this is something of a connoisseur's item, now restored to circulation and at super-budget price
