Wiener Streichquintett

Rohde*, Martin Albrecht (viola)

Schillings, Max von

Wiener Streichquintett



Max von Schillings:

String Quartet in E minor;
String Quintet op. 32 in E flat major*


Today the general public continues to remember Max von Schillings mainly as
an opera composer. During his lifetime he was a famous man, at least in
Germany, but today he no longer receives major notice. cpo has called
attention to his rewarding oeuvre with a number of releases. What is not so
well known is that Schillings completely dedicated himself to chamber music
at the beginning and at the end of his career as a composer. The String
Quartet in E minor of 1887 is a work of his youth establishing his
credentials both as a Wagnerian and as a highly gifted expert in Romantic
music of Classical orientation. By contrast, the String Quintet op. 32 of
1917 is a mature work showing him as an artist of magnificent expressivity
who continues to be influenced by his »Wagner experience« but also is aware
of what is happening around him. This is expressive fin de siècle par
excellence and a genuine discovery in this interpretation by the Vienna
String Quintet led by its first violinist Thomas Christian!
