Mozart: The Six "Haydn" Quartets / Juilliard Quartet
Composer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Joseph Haydn
Ensemble: Juilliard String Quartet
Sony Classics - #45826 / December 4, 1990

Click here for more information

These were the six quartets that caused Haydn to tell Mozart's father that his son was the finest composer in the world--and Haydn wasn't just saying that because Mozart dedicated the pieces to him. In richness of invention, density of thought, length, and melodic appeal, these pieces set new standards for the medium. However, they are not easy pieces to play or to listen to, and the Juilliard Quartet's lean, emphatic approach works very well in clarifying the busy textures and maximizing the...Read more


Complete Mozart Edition Vol 11 - String Quintets / Grumiaux

Composer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Performer: Eva Czako, Arpád Gerecz, et al.
Ensemble: Grumiaux Trio
Uni/Philips - #22511 / March 12, 1991

Click here for more information


Arthur Grumiaux's performances of Mozart, whether of the violin concertos, the sonatas, or various chamber pieces with violin, were marked by patrician elegance and an unfailing sense of style. For this 1973 recording of the string quintets, arguably the summit of Mozart's chamber output, Grumiaux surrounded himself with musicians of a similar stripe, and the result remains among the treasures of the catalog. By today's standards, the performances may sound just a bit laid-back and relaxed, but...Read more


Mozart, Brahms: Clarinet Quintets / Shifrin, Emerson Quartet
Composer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Johannes Brahms
Performer: David Shifrin, Lawrence Dutton, et al.
Ensemble: Emerson String Quartet
Uni/Deutsche Grammophon - #459641 / May 11, 199

Click here for more information

The Emersons and clarinetist Shifrin emphasize smoothness of line and a creamy blend of sound in this polished 1997 performance of the Mozart quintet. Tempos are ideal, giving Mozart's luxurious, long-breathed yet fragile melodies plenty of time to unfold without sacrificing animation or expressive point. Understatement rules in this interpretation, which is all the more intense and poignant because of it. The coupling is a rich, ripe, romantic account of the Brahms quintet, conveyed with...Read more


Mozart: The Piano Quartets / Ax, Stern, Ma, Laredo
Composer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Performer: Emanuel Ax, Jaime Laredo, et al.
Sony Classics - #66841 / February 25, 1997

Click here for more information

This is a wonderful recording of two indispensable masterpieces. By adding the viola, which he loved to play, to the popular piano trio, Mozart became "the father of the piano quartet" with these very different works, the first somber and dramatic, though it ends with a sprightly finale, the second lyrical and serene. Mozart treats all the instruments as equals, but primarily alternates piano and strings, bringing them together in climactic moments. This means that the musicians must inwardly...Read more
