Prom 07 - Schubert's String Quintet

BBC PROMS 2011

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

One of the greatest pieces of chamber music for the first of this season's Late Night Proms. A leading quartet of our time is joined by the distinguished cellist and founder member of the Berg Quartet, Valentin Erben. Barely thirty years old, but already near death, Schubert had his String Quintet rejected by his publisher and only performed and published many years after his death. But its exploratory outer movements and the sublimely transcendent slow movement, continue to inspire musicians, poets, film makers and audiences to this day.
