Schubert String Quintet.


  • Schubert String Quintet in C Major

Get closer to our musicians and discover one of Birmingham's best kept musical secrets, a series of short, informal concerts programmed and introduced by our musicians at CBSO Centre. 

Schubert’s C Major Quintet is filled with emotional ambiguity – moving between light and shade, serenity and drama, in constant alternation. The opening bars are typical of this, with the quiet sound of a C major chord immediately followed by the cloud of much darker harmony before the music dissolves back into the major. 


Performance durations vary, but are usually less than 1 hour.
A selection of delicious cakes and hot drinks will be available to buy up to an hour before the performances.
