About

Schubert’s ‘Death and the Maiden’ Quartet is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and HD video to download. The concert includes the early quartets in D major D94 and B flat major D68 as well as the monumental ‘Death and the Maiden’ D810, and it’s the first release in the Cuarteto Casals’ five-disc series of live performances of the complete quartets of Franz Schubert.

The physical edition includes a 24-page book with liner notes by William Kinderman, plus the concert in three different video formats: Blu-ray, DVD and HD Digital Video (MOV) to download with a voucher code.

Recorded with ten camera angles in HD plus surround sound at 24bit 96kHz, the live video was produced in five extraordinary concerts in the autumn of 2013, co-produced by Neu Records and L’Auditori de Barcelona. Video direction by Igor Cortadellas.

Region code: 2 (DVD) / B (Blu-ray)

“A quartet for the new millennium if I ever heard one.” - The Strad

“And one couldn't have wished for better advocates than the Cuarteto Casals, whose warm, full-toned playing was immaculate and poetic throughout.”
- The Independent

Reviews

This is wonderful playing, and the performance of all three works gains a lot from being seen as well as heard. ... I have never felt that I have seen such a happy team as the Cuarteto Casals. Not only their glances and occasional smiles, but their whole body language suggests a harmonious group each member of which retains his or her personality. And the results are wonderful.  Michael Tanner
