Format: Audio CD
Great music, of course, and it's nice to have the Clarinet Quintet in with String Quintets. I have just been enjoying the Guarneri set (which includes the string quartets dedicated to Haydn), but the sound here creates a different experience. It's a 1999 studio set, with each instrument given its own place in the aural spectrum with lovely tone, so you don't get the slightly more homogenized attack that you do with the Guarneris, and also the sound is a bit more present. For all that, the sense of the instruments' blending isn't compromised, despite the airier texture. The playing seems a bit more relaxed than the Guarneris, so all in all, you get a distinctive take on the music. It's good to have both perspectives. The second violist is Karel Rehak, and the clarinetist is Bohuslav Zahradnik. The only quibble I have is that the enclosed booklet lacks track information, and the musicians in the quartet are not individually identified. But it's the music that matters, and that's excellent.

NOTE: The amazon.uk price is too high. You can do better on American amazon.com, even with shipping charges.

Masterful music making! 3 Sept. 2001
By D. J. Edwards - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Previous reviewers have said it all. This is beautiful music performed with rich, sonorous, ensemble playing. The music is played with such intimate involvement that I felt like I was intruding in on a musical conversation. For Mozart lovers this has to be the second coming. At bargain price, this recordng may well have no superiors and few equals. No hesitation here is necessary for buying this set. This is the kind of music making that takes away the fear many have of the words, "chamber muisc." For those new to chamber music order quickly as this recording comes in and out of circulation without warning. For devotees of this fine art, don't deprive yourself of this musical event.

A real gem!! 26 Aug. 2000
By Lincoln-63542 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This set of 3 CD's is absolutely an authentic gem. The sound is georgeous!! So amazingly good that you'd think you have the Talich Quartet right in your room LIVE and just playing for you!! The performance of the Quartet is impressive, conveying the musical messages from Mozart in a warm, charming and invigorating way. I just can't stop listening these pieces!! I don't get tired of them!! I have never get bored with them.
If I were to live with only three CD's in my collection of Classical Music, this set would be one of them. No doubt about it!!
If you like Chamber Music, you like Mozart and if you consider yourself to be an audiophile or demand the best sound possible for what you pay for, and if you care for only top notch performers executing to the highest standards of quality, discipline and sensitive mastery, then this CD is for you.

Bargain of the Millenium! 2 Dec. 1999
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of the great Mozart sets of all time, and the price is ridiculously low. Not only do you get the 5 original string quintets, but you also get the quintet transcription of the Wind Serenade in C minor, PLUS the clarinet quintet. The performances are marvellous: lively and sensitive, without a trace of affectation. Tempi are beautifully judged, and rubato is minimal. The G minor quintet is superbly understated: the off-beat fortes in the minuet sound like muffled cries, almost too painful to listen to. The marvels of this set are countless; I would happily pay twice the price for it. If you love Mozart, you must have these recordings.

Sensitive and Emotional Mozart 29 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a wonderful album. The Talich have lived for a long time with this music and know every nuance. And these are glorious pieces of music. The five players engage in a conversation that is continually in flux. This is not delicate, elegant Mozart, but gutsy and full of life. Hardly ever does the quintet just blend into a homogenous mass of sound (some people tend in that direction, but not Talich). These pieces are great to listen to with headphones. The recorded sound is excellent.

Mozart's String Quintets 27 Jun. 2001
By Stephen E. Assey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Mozart's string quintets, along with the E flat trio & the quartets dedicated to Haydn, are among his greatest chamber works. The Talich play with fine ensemble & technical skill. Their sound is never over blended, glossy, or over projected. They never play to the balconey. Their playing is truly an intimate dialogue. That said, they are at times, slightly too reticent in some passages. Over all though, these are excellant performances of wonderful music. These quintets, much like the "Haydn Quartets", emcompass a large range of emotions and moods.The clarinet quintet is also very well performed. This set contains great music that is well performed, well recorded, and at a most reasonable price. Why hesitate?
