Schumann was the first great composer to combine his own instrument, the piano, with a string quartet and his Quintet in E flat is without doubt his supreme achievement in the realm of chamber music. Brahms' Quintet in f minor is also one of the most exceptional chamber music works in history. Put together, these two works form an ideal combination, especially when they can be heard in such outstanding performances as are given here by Paul Komen and the Rubio Quartet who have played these works all over Europe to great acclaim. Performances that are both fresh and spontaneous while at the same time showing a profound insight into the inner words of both the composers.
