QUINT ESSENTIAL

String Quintets by Franz Schubert and George Onslow

The string quintet stands as a sonorous and dusky rarity in comparison to its illustrious relative, the string quartet. 

QUINT ESSENTIAL presents Schubert’s matchless masterpiece of this unique genre alongside one of the works that may have inspired its creation by Schubert’s contemporary, George Onslow.
