Notes & Reviews:

This recording brings together two quartets composed almost forty years apart. Mozart's 'Dissonant' was the last of his set of six quartets dedicated to Joseph Haydn and marked the apogee of Classicism. Schubert's 'Rosamunde' was his first mature string quartet, written at the dawn of Romanticism and in the shadow of Beethoven. The juxtaposition offers a lesson in both contrasts and connections. Played here by the period instrument Chiaroscuro Quartet (which features violinist Alina Ibragimova), the power and beauty of these works are explored with virtuosity, wit and verve.
