Format: Audio CD
These recordings of Mozart's wonderful string quintets, I believe are the best available. For a start, the recording has a perfect balance of all the individual instruments with plenty of lower end for the Cello's. As for the playing, the G ensemble have such a relaxed approach to these mature peices which lets you assume that they have played them for many years. Anyone who is yet to discover these peices must do immediately! I have always prefered them over his more popular string quartets simply because they have a more spontaineous feel and aren't quite as uniformed as say the Haydn quartets can be. The quintets were written late in Mozart's life and have in good measure; both his early quirkyness(for look of a better word) mixed with a more complex tapestry in certain movements that almost seems to leave the classic mode to forsee the romantic era. These peices, I like to believe must have had a big influence on Beethoven's chamber music especially his op 18 quartets. The genius that Mozart is for me, is the effect the music has on you- even when you're not focused on it. These are always on my mp3 player and are fab for chilling you in the morning. Try it!

Format: Audio CD
Whenever I read reviews of recordings of the 6 String Quintets by Mozart, or hear these pieces reviewed on the radio, this recording by the quintet led by Arthur Grumiaux seems to top the poll, even with competition from more recent recordings. Having enjoyed these performances since they were released in this 3 CD format two decades ago, I am not surprised that the experts assess them so highly. The other members of the Quintet are Arpad Gerecz, Georges Janzer, Max Lesueur and Eva Czako.The sound on this Philips recording is still clear and bright and the playing exemplary. The set comes with an informative booklet.

This set is essential 18 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The string quintets are without a doubt masterworks, and Grumiaux et al. show how they're supposed to be played for all time. Amen.

Grumiaux's the man! 26 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sometimes I prefer Mozart's chamber music to all of his other music, but I always prefer Grumiaux. You don't want to buy the String Quintets by any old ensemble, no no... I think it will be quite some time before we hear these pieces played as well. I also love Grumiaux's handling of the Violin & Viola Duos. Highly recommended.

Touch of the Master's Hand 27 Feb 2001
By Antoine Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Being a young musician tackling the c minor quintet in my senior year of high school, you always search for recordings of the masters to hear their interpretations of certain pieces. By an act of the supernatural, I stumbled across this one. Sheer excellence, wonderful phrasing, and awesome lyricism filled the studio when there musicians got together. The chemistry that was between them is definately felt as you listen to these quintets. I am not a big Mozart fan but these quintets are some of his finest works next to his sacred works. Grumiaux was a wonderful violinist and interpreter of the masters. This recording gave me and my quintet wonderful insight and tons of inspiration as to how these pieces should be played. Truly, those pieces were touched by the hands of the masters as they performed and recorded these works.

Belongs in every classical collection 11 Aug 2000
By bruce horner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Four of these string quintets are quite frankly the best things Mozart ever wrote for strings, better even than any of the quartets. These recordings by the Grumiaux Trio plus two are the finest I have ever heard. Everyone who has any interest in chamber music should have them.

String Quintets/Grumiaux 16 Mar 2001
By E. Jeremy Gershfeld - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Absolutely beautiful chamber music. This ensemble's elegance is desperately missing in more contemporary/recent performances. A must have recording, for such sublime music.
