5.0 out of 5 stars Catch This "Trout", Nov. 15 2000

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Trout Quintet / Death and the Maiden Quartet (Audio CD)
This performance of Schubert's "Trout" Quintet and the "Death and the Maiden" Quartet by the Amadeus String Quartet is simply first rate. The great Emil Gilels joins the ensemble for the "Trout" recording, and needless to say his playing is outstanding. With that being said I must confess I did not select this disc to be my definitive performance of these compositions. That honor instead goes to the "Trout" recording featuring Yo-Yo Ma and Edgar Meyer, and the Emerson String Quartet's version of "Death and the Maiden." While all of these performances are stellar, my reason for opting for these other two titles over this Amadeus CD is the additional compositions you get with the Ma and Emerson CDs respectively (particularly the latter which is a three-disc set collecting all of the late Schubert String Quartets and the late Quintet with Rostropovich joining Emerson). However, if all you desire is a quintessential recording of Schubert's two most famous pieces for strings, then you can't go wrong with Amadeus.
