The Spirit of Song

In 1824, Franz Schubert wrote to a friend: »I have written few new songs, but I have tried my hand at several instrumental works, for I have composed two quartets for violins, viola and violoncello and an Octet, and I intend to write another Quartetto; in general, I intend to pave my way to the great symphony in this way.« Among the works mentioned was the string quartet that was later to be given the nickname »Death and the Maiden«, since Schubert quotes the song of the same name in the slow movement – characteristic of his path towards a rebirth of chamber music from the spirit of song.

Over sixty years later, Antonín Dvořák was already beginning to turn away from the influence of the German neo-Romantic school with his Piano Quintet, especially in the finale. In Alexander Melnikov, the Belcea Quartet has found a congenial partner for the interpretation of the quintet: »This pianist has a palette of timbres at his disposal, a sense of the right moment, an eloquence that makes you want to jump up and look at what he is actually doing between his fingertips and the keyboard« according to the Hamburger Abendblatt.
