Schubert Quintet

Prepare to be enthralled by the greatest work of chamber music.


In 1828, two months before his untimely death at the age of just 31, Schubert completed what would be his only string quintet. Unperformed for more than two decades after his death, it has risen to be admired as a work of extraordinary emotional range and great beauty, demanding exceptional skill from its performers.


This performance of the Schubert Quintet by members of Australian Octet is matched with Dvorak’s atmospheric Sextet and a newly-commissioned Octet from one of our finest living composers, Graeme Koehne.
