And at the same time the concerts documented here, performed in the hall we inaugurated and know best, depend on outside perception — on the audience in the hall or the listener alone at home. When we began performing the Schubert cycle Barcelona was the last stop on a tour that included London, Schwarzenberg, Florence, Lisbon and Madrid, among other cities a colleague asked why we agreed to this massive undertaking.
Are the early Schubert quartets worthwhile in the way that the Opus 18 Beethoven quartets undeniably are? Of course the comparison is inherently unjust: at around the same age that Beethoven was publishing his first quartets, Schubert was writing his late masterpieces. That is to say, to discover the young Schubert is to find a treasure trove of materials, waiting to be moulded into their most perfect form.
It was in this spirit that we set about making this live recording, in hopes that a listener beyond the limits of that hall on those nights would join us in discovering these great works anew. One always speculates -at least I do- about the dynamics, artistic and personal, of string quartet performers, but I have never felt that I have seen such a happy team as the Cuarteto Casals. Not only their glances and occasional smiles, but their whole body language suggest a harmonious group each member of which retains his or her personality Michael Tanner.
