Bach’s lush writing for large ensemble set the course not only for the development of the concerto but similarly for the establishment of such genres as the modern piano quintet. Disc II features three staples of the chamber music literature: the virtuosic Rondo in A Major for Violin and String Quartet by Franz Schubert, written in the tradition of the concerto, bookended by two grand-scale piano quintets by Dmitry Shostakovich and César Franck.
