About

The Quintet for Piano (left hand), Clarinet, and String Trio in A major was the last major work completed by Franz Schmidt prior to his death. The Quintet in A major lasts about an hour and once again sums up the composer’s piano ideal: extreme transparency, not an orchestra substitute, along with an ensemble employed with special delicacy. The second movement is an extended, poetic piano solo. In the finale the composer pulls out all the stops of his talent with Mozartian lightness.

Linos Ensemble:
- Konstanze Eickhorst (piano left hand)
- Rainer Müller van Recum (clarinet)
- Winfried Rademacher (violin)
- Matthias Buchholz (viola)
- Mario Blaumer (cello)
