In the program notes for this CD pianist Paul Badura-Skoda writes of Schubert's Quintet in C as "one of the great masterpieces of western music. The perfection of its form, the profundity of its message, the beauty of the strings' sonority and its melodic richness make it a summit in Schubert's output," and it would be difficult to argue with his assessment.
Schubert's Quintet is well known by music lovers, and the history of recording is punctuated by fine interpretations. Péter Ligeti, the violist of the Festetics Quartet, readily affirms that a string quartet does not reach a peak until at least ten years of working together: the Quartet was founded in 1985 - staying true to playing period instruments since their founding.
Archibudelli's interpretation of Schubert C-Major Quintet is interesting - more "interesting" than entirely convincing. Interesting, first, because of their extremely brisk pacing of the first movement, more "Allegro" (and even molto) than "non troppo"
