No music lover can remain untouched by the emotional quality of this work, composed in Schubert's last year. The monumental weight of the outer movements, the intimate lyricism of the "Adagio", as well as the unusual timbre ensure the uniqueness of this quintet. An additional cello, which takes on an essential melodic role, joins the classical string quartet. The editor of our new Urtext edition, Egon Voss, not only does justice to the difficult source situation; with new and convincing solutions for difficult page turns, he also takes into account the demands of musical practice.

    Although I was a bit sorry not to use a local store, the part was shipped much faster (and to my doorsteps) then if I had ordered it through the local store. I was in a rush and Sheet Music Plus did the job.Great selection.
