BBC CHOICE

5 stars Performance / 5 stars Sound

'Tender warmth radiates from page after page, dialogue between the voices emerges with keen, intimate intensity. The great Adagio is as exalted and touching as it should be. All round a fascinating, rewarding disc.' BBC Music Magazine 

Recording of the Month: '...their hushed close to the Adagio of the Quintet is exquisite.' MusicWeb International

'The relaxed swing they bring to the Scherzo and Trio recalls the Fifth like no previous recording...' Gramophone 

 

This is the first recording to use gut strings (a special set from Dan Larsen in Minnesota was obtained specially for this recording) and original instruments at the correct pitch for the time. Having first tackled the Bruckner Quintet nearly forty years ago , the Fitzwilliam's starting point was achieving the famous ‘Bruckner Sound' as well as considering tempo, bow strokes, use of vibrato and portamento in the performance. With many great moments (such as the Adagio) the Quintet is guaranteed an exalted place in the hierarchy of chamber masterworks.

Upon hearing the performance The Bruckner Journal wrote: 'It was a revelation to hear Bruckner's quintet played on instruments with this gut string set-up appropriate to the time of its composition, and to hear it performed with a flexible lyricism that has become a rare thing in Bruckner performance.'
