Notes & Reviews:
The Voce Quartet's first two recordings, devoted to Schubert and then Beethoven, were released to praise from critics such as TÚlÚrama and The Strad. This eclectic, innovative quartet is now celebrating its tenth anniversary by tackling string quintets of Mozart and Brahms. The Brahms quintet, both brilliant and highly moving, recalls some of the composer's best-known themes. Violist Lise Berthaud is called upon to round out the quintet.

The Quatuor Voce was founded in Paris in 2004. This seems to be their fourth commercial recording; their recent Beethoven was favorably reviewed by Elaine Fine (Quartets 1, 8, 11; M/A 2014). I have admiration for their playing. The opening of the Mozart (K 515 inC) is wonderfully light and sprightly. The Brahms, a rich, autumnal work, is played with passion.
