Night Music – Franz Schubert

Camille Thomas * May 1988

Beatrice Berrut * 19 April 1985

Franz Schubert (31 January 1797 – 19 November 1828)


  1. Agh reel me in! Vintage Schubert, transcibed for cello in this instance and a superlative job of it too. For me- favourite composer and favourite instrument so thanks so much for the post.

    You might like the Schidloff quartet playing Schubert's String Quintet ( obviously with another player) in my opinion they've nailed it. That being said, the audience couldn't have been that familiar with the piece because they started to applaud half way through tba scherzo movement - the viola had to raise his hand to let them know it hadn't finished!

    1. A fine piece to prove he did not (really) die 193 years ago, eh?
      As for the Schidlof quartet: I did not find it. Could you, please, provide with the very link?
      And yes, the Cello is a fine instrument.

    2. Hopeless with tech though am improving

      fatih gun posted it. 54mins 28 seconds

      that should find it for you.

      My only (very slight) objection is they applaud in between movements and the players tune up a little. Takes away the continuity of the piece. I know I'm being a tad harsh.

    3. Hm, I get shown a few Quartets (Borodin ~, Dover ~, Emerson ~, Reynold ~), but neither Schidlof Quartet nor Fatih Gun.
      Anyway, thank you, Mark.
