Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This recording features the 'trailblazing' Mozart: the first-ever composer to take wind instruments seriously, exploiting each instrument's character and endowing them with individualistic, distinctive roles - as soloists, in the orchestra or in chamber music, the subject of this engaging release. At hand to perform these works is the Zurich-based Ensemble Pyramide, a group whose diverse repertoire ranges from Baroque to 21st c. and whose recital programs often juxtapose between new and old.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The Ensemble Pyramide is a modern instrument chamber group whose playing has delightful subtlety. The flutist and oboist have enchanting sounds; the strings take largely supporting roles. Everyone is balanced well. This presents a great opportunity to hear some late works by Mozart we rarely encounter along with two more familiar ones well played.
