I'd like to see the Melos/Rostro DG recording on SACD, from Universal or perhaps Pentatone (though I doubt it was quad).

Yes, indeed! I've got that one on LP. But I doubt that Pentatone would re-release it, even if it were quad, as they will release the quad of the LaSalle & Harrell, at the time released a year later than the Melos. I don't know the LaSalle.

Too bad, the forthcoming recording of the Quintet by the Amsterdam Sinfonietta http://www.hraudio.net/showmusic.php?title=10911 appears to be a curiosity -- no doubt stupendously recorded:

"One of the icons of chamber music, Schubert's celebrated String Quintet is heard in an unusual version on this recording. Schubert's work was styled after those of Boccherini and Onslow, which featured two violins, viola and two cellos. After hearing the double bass virtuoso Domenico Dragonetti, Onslow decided to add an alternative bass part to replace the second cello part. Schubert might have done the same if he had heard Dragonetti play, so the Amsterdam Sinfonietta commissioned this Marijn van Prooijen adaptation, and the double bass part is performed here by Rick Stotijn."
