The String Quartet in C Major is Schubert’s most sublimely beautiful work. Nicknamed the “Cello” Quintet for the unusual choice of a second cello, the piece has a rich, dark sound that is artfully balanced with exuberant, life-affirming moments. The unfinished, one-movement “Quartettstatz” was the first quartet to reveal Schubert’s true genius in that genre.
