Vaughan Williams Concertos. RVW Orchestral. These features are apparent in nascent form in the earlier works; the teenage Schubert was finding his voice by regularly writing string quartets for performance by family and friends before a crisis of confidence caused him to abandon the genre.

I confess to not having heard them before. These recordings were made twenty and more years ago and astonishingly, nowhere are the musicians here named; I had to research them on the internet to discover that this a re-issue of a set from and that Martin Lovett, formerly of the Amadeus Quartet, is the supplementary cellist for the Quintet. In general, the Verdi Quartet opts for somewhat slower, more reflective approach; hence, for example, in the Scherzo of the Quintet their timing at almost eleven minutes is almost the same as that of my favourite recording from the Villa Ensemble Musica on Naxos, whereas the Alban Berg are almost two minutes faster — and that makes quite a difference in affect and effect of the music.
There is a trade-off here: harder and faster lends more bite; a less driven and more considered delivery enhances poignancy — but of course it is the relationship between sections which counts more than overall timings.

It should also be noted that the Verdi Quartet do not observe the first movement repeats in the last three quartets and the Quintet , which I regret, as I like to hear such wonderful music twice and think it adds balance to the structure, more impact to the drama and the opportunity for interpretative variety. Only in the Quartettsatz D is the repeat observed, but of course that is essential to so short a movement in sonata structure.
Among the early works, there may be few which are consistently inspired but there is much in them which elevates the music far beyond the level of mere study exercises. There is often a moto perpetuo obsessiveness about the music which, peculiarly, reminds me of Shostakovich in the same form.
The fifth quartet, D 68, consists of only two surviving movements of considerable power but it is D 74 which heralds the arrival of the recognisably mature Schubert - albeit still only sixteen years old — and some consider it to be his first masterpiece in the genre, although I would rate the slightly earlier D 94 its equal. The six Menuets and five German Dances from evince even in this occasional music some of the surprising trademark Schubertian tropes; they are cheerful and charming but hardly essential and are presumably here for completeness.
