Format: Audio CD
These early performances by the greatest string quartet of the 20th century are absolutely gorgeous. They may not be quite as virtuosic as the Amadeus' later stero recordings of Mozart's quartets and quintets, but they are more mellow and lyrical. Combining expert musicianship, technical mastery, gorgeous sound, vivacity, and unbelievably tight ensemble playing, the Amadeus Quartet brings out the beauty of every melodic line of Mozart's ingenious compositions and does justice to each note and ornament. The mono sound does not at all detract from the performances, and at the price this set can't be beat.

heavenly hybrid 25 May 2012
By Kirk List - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This set contains the ten later quartets and four of the six later quintets : k174 and 406 (my least favorite ones) are missing. DG and Westminster contributed. The sound on the re-makes is better,and the performances are comparable with two exceptions. The earlier version of the quintet k515 possesses a markedly better first movement (slower) than its later counterpart (rushed). Also, the cosmetized (not by Mozart)last movement of the quintet k593 is replaced in the later quintet set by the original version. 6 of one perhaps, but I am thrilled with the earlier k515.

PEERS: Quartets-Quartetto Italiano, Emerson Quartet (9 of the ten-k499 is missing), Smetana Quartet (#s 14-19-Denon)
Quintets-Grumiaux Ensemble; Talich Quartet
