5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain of bargains 23 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Hidden away here are the legendary 1960s performances of these works by Gervase de Peyer and the marvellous Melos Ensemble . Everything is right , superbly judged tempi - delightful interplay of the instruments and searchingly beautiful interpretations .

Recommended with all possible enthusiasm.

I'll keep this simple, this is; deeply moving, beautifully played, sensitively performed chamber music of exceptional quality. A true classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars De Peyer & the Melos of London with Mozart and Brahms... 28 April 2013
By B.E.F. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD

There are certain chamber-works of which we never tire.

Be it on FM radio, in concert, or in home, whenever they're heard our ears prick up and we sit back to relish the ride--by whomsoever they're performed.
They never outstay their welcome; and we never grow weary of their company.

Nominees for this list definitely include Dvorák's `American' Quartet, Beethoven's Septet, Schubert's `Great' G-major Sonata, and the two masterpieces featured on this disc: the Clarinet Quintets of Mozart and Brahms.

Gervase de Peyer was a founding member of the Melos Ensemble of London; he and Karl Leister are undoubtedly the two principal classical clarinettists of the modern era; both have recorded these twain Clarinet Quintets with various ensembles, and each of the realizations is invariably unique.

(Aside--too, we musn't however forget the late great Dieter Klöcker.)

But of all available recorded performances, these two here (recorded 1964-65) remain foremost favourites for their unity of ensemble, distinctive devoir, and excellence of execution.
