"This is the onl Schulhoff performance I could get in CD. Few yeras ago, in Jerusalem, I attended a concert with Schulhoff quartet. The performance was lead by Peter Matzka who is the second Violinist in this performance and by Hagay Schaham, a famous insraeli violinist who than, played the second violin. It was a very a very beautiful performance. One year later in the Jerusalem Chamber Pestival (leaded by Elena Bashkirova), few pieces of Schulhoff where performed , including this sextet, and I liked the musik very much. SO I decided to purchase a schulhoff performance and I found this CD with Schulhoff sextet, where Mr. Peter Matzka is the second violinist. The performance meets my expectations and I like it very much.
The Beethoven quintet is one of Beethoven's early musik. I think (guess) that he wrote it in the period right after his 3rd symphony. However, I like Beethoven musik from this period to be a kind of "light and easy" and in this performance I hear a sort of "heavyness". Some phrases which I think should be "understatemented" are emphasized and it sound more like late Beethoven. Any how, even though I liked this performance too. "
