Brodsky Quartet: Schubert Hour – String Quintet with Laura van der Heijden

Schubert Hour

Casals/Cassidy El cant dels ocells
Schubert String Quintet in C, D.956
Brodsky Quartet
Laura van der Heijden cello

In the second edition of the hugely popular hour-long series, the Brodsky Quartet perform Schubert’s last three quartets and his quintet, lovingly set up with musical preludes.


For exiled cellist Pablo Casals’ the poignant El cant dels ocells (Song of the Birds) was a symbol of his lost homeland, Catalonia. It’s heard here in an arrangement for string quartet before the Brodsky’s are joined by leading young cellist Laura van der Heijden for Schubert’s sublime swansong, the String Quintet in C.

This is a live only streaming event, and will not be available on demand after the performance.
