2015 Schubert Disc 1

Disc 1 traces the blossoming of Schubert's compositional skill, from the Overture in c minor for String Quartet, D. 8a (1811), written when Schubert was just fourteen years old, through his first mature work in the genre, his unfinished Quartettsatz of 1820. During these years, Schubert brought the art of the lied to new heights. Included here is his famous song Die Forelle as well as two works inspired by the famous Trout Quintet and Liszt's transcription of this notable melody.
