The Amadeus Quartet Schubert String Quartet Nos. 12 & 14 DMM 180g Import LP
180g Vinyl LP!
Three Austrian émigrés, Peter Schidlof (viola), Norbert Brainin (violin) and
Siegmund Nissel (violin) from Vienna joined up with the British cellist Martin
Lovett and formed the Amadeus Quartet in 1947. Their smooth, seamless style of
playing attracted a large following.
The String Quartet in D minor, "Der Tod und das Mädchen" (Death and the Maiden),
is considered one of Schubert's finest chamber works. The String Quartet in C
minor (popularly known as the "Quartettsatz") is the first movement of a string
quartet that Schubert never completed. It was listed as his String Quartet no.
12 on publication. The unfinished quartet is regarded as one of the first
products of Schubert's mature phase of composition.
