'The Kuss hold back nothing in their depiction of spine-chilling power in these movements....' said Gramophone magazine of the Kuss Quartet's recording of Schubert's G major Quartet ONYX4066.

For their new release they are joined by cellist Miklos Perenyi for the greatest of Schubert's chamber works, the late String Quintet. This is an altogether more relaxed and genial work than the G major Quartet, and contains one of the composers most haunting and beautiful slow movements. The Kuss Quartet excel in this repertoire as can be heard on this CD.
