What a treat! Two of the most magnificent chamber music compositions ever written - the Schubert String Quintet in C major and the Schumann Piano Quintet in E major - combined on to one SACD.

It is not known when exactly Schubert wrote his string quintet. He mentions the composition in a letter to his publisher dated less than seven weeks prior to his untimely death. This is the only clue as to the work's period of composition. Therefore, it can be safely assumed that it is one of the last works he ever composed. One may also assume he himself never heard it being performed: almost unimaginable, if one really thinks about it.

After a legal battle with his piano teacher Friedrich Wieck, father to his beloved Clara Wieck, Robert Schumann and Clara finally gained the right to marry on 12 September 1840. The first years of their marriage were the happiest of Schumann's life, which translated to an outburst of musical creativity. While until then Schumann wrote almost exclusively for piano solo, he then started to widen his scope. Schumann wrote a large number of masterpieces within a period of just four to five years, varying from his famous song cycles (Liederkreis Op. 39, Frauenliebe und -leben and Dichterliebe) to his first symphony, a piano concerto and string quartets to the piano quintet which was written for his young bride. Unlike Schubert and his string quintet, Schumann must have heard his piano quintet often during his lifetime, as Clara, delighted with the masterpiece dedicated to her, performed it regularly to the public.
