Notes & Reviews:

The acclaimed Prazak Quartet performs three of the six "Haydn" Quartets, in which, like instrumental mini-operas, Mozart perfects the lyric continuity and differentiation between the parts. Here the most vehement emotion coexists with the rigor of an evolving form, as in K.421. In the "Hunt" Quartet, the composer turns to the gallant style, the better to send it up with a thoroughly Haydnesque wit and mastery of discourse. Only the "Dissonant" Quartet opens with a slow introduction - whose famous dissonances jolted its first listeners - that contrasts with the luminous style of what follows.
