This time they are joined by the former leader of the ensemble’s bass group Rick Stotijn. The programme features Schubert’s celebrated String Quintet in C major in a unique arrangement with double bass. They recorded a highly acclaimed CD of this version under the Channel Classics label in 2015. The first half of the concert features Dvořák’s quintessentially Bohemian String Quintet opus 77 and the Chorale Fantasy by Mohammed Fairouz, a fantasy on a number of Arabic song melodies.
