Description: Although this big-boned, weighty and serious 40-minute quartet from 1864, lightened delightfully by its five-minute scherzo, was one of Rubinstein's best-known works during his lifetime, it has never been recorded until now. Its Mendelssohnian-Schumannian discmate is better known as a quintet for piano and winds but Rubinstein had both versions published simultaneously (in 1860 although the work originally dated from around 1855); this is its first recording in this version. Leslie Howard (piano), Rita Manning (violin), Morgan Goff (viola), Justin Pearson (cello).
