Intimate, moving works – hear them like never before
Bursting with emotion, Dvořák’s String Serenade is one of this his most popular works. Schubert’s Quintet in C was written in the final weeks of his life – and features gorgeous richness and delicate tenderness. Hear these two intimate works – originally written for small ensembles – brought to life by the full string section of Mercury.
