Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This disc, excellently recorded in 2000 and 2004, offers the Mozart and Beethoven piano quintets that many collectors will find to be an ideal and obvious coupling and with a top quality group of performers that do not fail to satisfy. There is even a bonus extra item in the form of Mozart's Adagio and Rondeau in C KV 617 arranged by Michael Hasel for piano and one of each of the four woodwinds.

The quintet by Mozart is his only such combination and it was written at the time of the piano concertos 15, 16 and 17. These three concertos fall within the middle of Mozart's piano concertos and therefore at a time where he had fully mastered his craft and immediately precede his final masterpieces. The piano quintet shares that compositional inspiration and skill and the work could almost be described as a mini concerto in its own right. The three movement format of Largo/Allegro moderato; Larghetto; Allegretto is similar to a concerto format and in this case the woodwind writing fills the role of the orchestra with its use of dialogue.

The Adagio and Rondeau is an arrangement by the ensemble's flautist and reworks the quintet written for glass harmonica, flute, oboe, viola and cello. That unusual combination has been successfully and more usefully transformed into a quintet for piano and the four woodwinds.

Beethoven's piano quintet is an early work dating from 1796 and carrying the opus 16 number. It was written during a concert tour immediately before he was struck by increasing deafness and at a time when chamber music was in great demand. This quintet was a reworking of the standard piano quartet combination of piano, violin, viola and cello.

I recently heard these two pieces at a concert, coupled as on this CD. I was anxious to get to know them better, and this CD fills the bill perfectly - a stunning combination.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great music, beautifully played 26 Jan. 2015
By Paul S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought this CD on a whim after hearing the finale of the Beethoven on the radio and reading a positive review in the (alas, a bit outdated) Penguin Guide. The Mozart and Beethoven piano and wind quintets are truly great music, although the filler pieces (2 Mozart transcriptions) are lightweight. It seems to me, though, that these are performances that emphasize polish over intensity; I sense that just a bit more might be made of this glorious music. That's why I withheld a star. Certainly the polish is there--these are wonderfully crafted performances, with lots of buttery smooth wind harmonies, first-class balance, and utterly gorgeous sound. This includes Bis' excellent recording. I don't want to overstate my reservations: there is feeling in the playing, and tons of Mozartian elegance--even in the Beethoven, which is interpreted in such a way as to highlight the strong influence Mozart had on that early work. No regrets about my purchase.

Some of the best Quintets I have listened to from Stephen Hough.
These Quintets seem to be some of his finest work
