I bought these discs for my other half for Christmas. We went to hear the Brodsky Quartet play them last year in St. Andrews (with Scott Dickinson, the BBCSSO's superb principle viola as the 'extra' member) and have spent many happy hours exploring this wonderful music.
This is very much Mozart playing of the old school. The tone is (perhaps) sugary and there is some portamento which is perhaps a bit old fashioned. (Although it's an art which seems to be be coming back). The tempi are well judged and give the music time to breath.
These discs must be historic but there will surely always be a place for such communicative performances.

I still have these on LP and thought it was about time I replaced them This recordig is performed by the Heutling Quintet, but couldn't find it on Amazon, so opted for this performance which is excellent.
