Among the genre of Strings Quartets, there’s no other that reveals the quintessence of the post-romantic atmosphere like this Op. This is without any doubt one of the last masterpieces of Schubert. Written in 1828, it epitomizes and depicts the slight barrier between dream and reality, creating an illusionist atmosphere that leaves behind itself any the previous attempt. It’s such its kaleidoscopic conjunction of unsaid feelings and thoughts that may be regarded like a musical canvas which transcends by far the limits of its historical moment. The approach given by the Amadeus Quartet is intensely dramatic and powerfully convincing, specially in the First movement where they achieve a coherent structure of gelid mystery.
