Notes & Reviews:

The fact that an ensemble with the name 'Mozarthaus Quartet' produces its debut CD with a Mozart program undoubtedly elicits little surprise. Balanced against the choice of at least 23 works of genius Mozart composed for this instrumentation tips the scales decidedly in the quartet's favor. Sandor and Adam Javorkai, Kazutaka Takahasi and Alexander Park begin with the String Quartet in D minor KV 421 from the series of the 'Haydn quartets'. The second work (in D major KV 575) derives from the group of the last three quartets Mozart dedicated to the King of Prussia (the 'Prussian quartets').

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
A fine reading of two very popular works. I own several recordings of Quartet 15, and I don't mind adding this to my collection. They play with accuracy and energy. This was recorded at the Mozarthaus, and the hall is very reverberant. It's a very warm and rich sound.
