Notes and Editorial Reviews

For sheer virtuosity, ensemble exactitude, and rhythmic sparkle, Telarc's 1990 recording of Schubert's beloved "Trout" Quintet easily ranks among the catalog's finest. The musicians opt for breathtakingly brisk tempos in the odd-numbered movements while bringing a wealth of genial inflections to the table and a genuine sense of give-and-take from player to player. A muscular, robust reading of the A minor Quartet D. 804 provides generous filler, although I prefer the Auryn Quartet's subtler, comparatively lean-textured account on CPO. While Telarc's sound slightly lacks the warmth and intimacy I treasure in this repertoire, audiophiles will respond to the reverberant clarity of each instrument. At midprice, you can't go wrong.
