Arensky Chamber Orchestra
Boccherini: String Quintet in C
Schubert: Quintet in C
The most famous moment in Boccheriniís C major quintet is the ĎCelebrated Minuet', whose timeless melody is woven into popular culture and appears in films as diverse as Blues Brothers and This is Spinal Tap!
Rounding out the evening is one of true pinnacles of the string chamber music repertoire. Composed during the final weeks of Schubertís life, the Quintet in C was the composer's last instrumental work and possibly his greatest accomplishment. Itís most iconic movement is the Adagio - a piece of such sublime tranquility that time seems to stand still throughout. Yet every other movement lives up to this extraordinary standard as well - from the expanse of the opening Allegro to the dazzling scherzo, it is a work of endless invention, radiant and rich sound-worlds and infinite varieties of texture and colour.
