Experience the heartfelt inspiration of Schubert’s final years in Death and the Maiden, evocatively filled with deep sorrow and stark drama. The slow movement from his Piano Trio, D. 929, exudes bleak, inevitable loss amidst its inexorable momentum. This attractive programme ends with Dvořák’s infrequently heard Quintet No. 2 for string quartet and double bass, a work full of his melodic trademarks, signifying his burgeoning maturity as one of Czech people’s greatest composers.
