String Quartets, Vol. 2 by Franz Schubert

Parts only. Edited by Carl Herrmann. Published by CF Peters

Franz Schubert (1797-1828) was an Austrian composer of the Romantic Era and generally considered one of the greatest composers in the history of Western classical music. Despite his early death at age 31, he was remarkably prolific, leaving behind a vast oeuvre of over 1500 compositions, with over 600 art songs at its center. He left his mark on all genres, including--most consequentially for string players--on chamber music. His individual style grew out of the influences of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven and was characterized by a mastery of melodic writing as well as formal experimentation and significant harmonic innovation.

Schubert composed string quartets throughout his composing life, from the time of his studies with Salieri right up to the last years of his life. They show his fascinating development as a composer, from early works inspired by Mozart and Rossini to the his late, mature masterpieces. Taken together, they represent one of the most important quartet cycles in the repertory. This Peters edition, Volume 2 of 2, contains No.15, his final masterpiece of the genre quartets, as well as a slew of earlier, genial quartets and his early mature single-movement "Quartettsatz". Parts only. Ranges from Grade 4-6.
