The Belcea Quartet again

I’ve mentioned here before my ever-growing admiration for the Belcea Quartet. Last week at a late night Prom concert they played the Schubert Quintet (with Valentin Erben as the second cello) with their usual intensity. You can hear it here for another few days. You have to forgive the inter-movement sprinklings of applause: this is a rather wonderful performance, and probably heard better on the radio than it would have been in the vastness of the Albert Hall. Listen — and then get their even better CD performance.
