This work by Schubert exists in two versions. The second one includes more solo moments for both the violinist and violist and gives the impression of Schubert’s later music full of emotion that defined him.
The first true success in the field of chamber music, Poulenc found his voice by combining piano (which he often played) with his beloved woodwinds. This work has a playful nature throughout.
One of the great pieces in the repertoire, this work started as a string quintet before Brahms abandoned that version for a two piano version. Not satisfied with that version, he reworked it once more for a piano quintet.
