2016 Gramophone Award Nominee
'Chamber Music'

 

 

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.'

'...a performance that sounds absolutely wonderful...The deeply felt lyrical passages with which this music abounds, in this performance should melt the stoniest of hearts...'

Fanfare Magazine
'The playing articulates with great subtlety the Romantic abundance of Bruckner's slow movements-the Adagio to the quintet is especially gorgeous-while not shying away from the bizarre and kinky writing in the scherzos and finales and in the Intermezzo. Linn's recording and the acoustic of the recording venue are ideal.'
more >>

AllMusic
'The lucid performances by the Fitzwilliam String Quartetmake the music immediately intelligible and appealing. Joined by violist James Boyd in the Quintet, the ensemble produces a warm and radiant sound that dispels any worries of Brucknerian complexity, and even in the pensive Quartet, the playing is ingratiating and quite evocative of Schubert, a key influence in early Bruckner.'
more >>

Herald Scotland
'What's intriguing in these outstanding performances by the Fitzwilliam Quartet with guest violist James Boyd are the myriad seedbed elements to be heard in the early String Quartet, and just how effectively the colossal Bruckner sound translates into a chamber music idiom in the Quintet.'

« Deux beaux témoignages de musique pure jaillie de l'imagination d'un artiste, dont les imperfections formelles - étonnant paradoxe - confinent presque toujours à la beauté. »
