The Amadeus Quartet
'Normally a quartet, being a sealed unit, focus their interpretation to a central point and the audience listen in. But the Amadeus Quartet create their music in a great centre of musicianship and throw it out in an extrovert way. So the audience are not listening in, but having the music thrown around them.'
In April this year,
Peter Schidlof , Norbet Brainin , Siegmund Nissel and Martin Lovett were joined by the cellist Robert Cohen to record Schubert's String Quintet.
Tragically, it was to be the quartet's last recording, as Peter Schidlof died in August. After the sessions the five musicians talked to
Christopher Cook about
Schubert, their playing, and themselves.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
