From the Archives - Schubert Cello Quintet

Portrait of Franz Schubert.
Wilhelm August Rieder
Vienna Museum

Franz Schubert was prolific, but he wrote only one string quintet that added a second cello to the standard quartet, and it was composed weeks before his death. Hear it in a spectacular performance with a superstar second cellist.
