Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
Mozart was a great child prodigy who went on, as we all know, to become one of the greatest composers. This album gives us a welcome opportunity to watch some of his development. In the 13 early quartets, Mozart can be observed working in a three-movement form born out of the cassations and small divertimentos so popular at the time. One of the best of the three-movement quartets is No. 4 in C, whose first movement offers some appealing duet writing for the violins and some of the composer's most attractive melodic passages, plus a presto finale that bubbles with happiness.

Gramophone Magazine
The Talich Quartet strikes the imagination by its luminous beauty and original approach. Mozart has rarely achieved such perfectly judged fullness or proven so charming and joyful. Everything here is light and happiness.
