St. Paul, Minn. — A trip to Northfield takes a listener through the vast and, at times, rolling corn and soybean fields of southern Minnesota.

Fans of chamber music would have made that trip this August, the peak of the summer growing season, to attend a performance of the Bridge Chamber Music Festival.

From an August 13 performance at St Olaf College comes a work as vast as the topography. The opening of Schubert's last great work, his String Quintet in C, is in this week's Regional Spotlight.
