Taneyev (1856–1915) composed three quintets, each with a different instrumental line-up. The Piano Quintet of 1911 was the last of them, but before that he had written a G major String Quintet for two violins, viola and two cellos and a String Quintet in C major for two violins, two violas and cello. With such a variety of timbre, the three works make for a fascinating two-disc set, especially when played with such sensitivity and thought as by the ensemble here.

Allied to his secure structures and well-considered counterpoint, Taneyev also had a musical heart, often passionately expressed and with a dynamic, romantic impulse. Those are qualities that come across clearly in these performances: they have a strong backbone, but equally are alert to the lithe interplay between the five instruments to create substantial canvases in sound.
