To present Schubert's Quintet for two cellos, dating from the final months of his life, would be superfluous. There is no lack of commentary concerning this absolute masterpiece, and any attempt to add to it would be incongruous. In this respect, one will felicitously refer to the poetic commentary written for the present recording by Paul Badura-Skoda, a great Schubertian. Schubert's Quintet is well known by music lovers, and the history of recording is punctuated by fine interpretations. Péter Ligeti, the violist of the Festetics Quartet, readily affirms that a string quartet does not reach a peak until at least ten years of working together: the Quartet was founded in 1985 - staying true to playing period instruments since their founding. All of the members live in Budapest, enabling them to work together often, without problems of travelling, and that they benefited from the same training - the famous Hungarian school - which ensures a perfect homogeneity of sound.
