Notes & Reviews:

Mozart's string quintets are every bit the equal of his string quartets and are among the finest ever written for this genre. None of the six masterpieces is weaker than the others. Matthias Lingenfelder, Jens Oppermann, Stewart Eaton and Andreas Arndt have long harboured the desire to record this summit of the chamber music repertoire. With Nobuko Imai as second viola, they have now found a sympathetic partner who has integrated into the ensemble so well that it seems as if she has been playing with them for the entire 35 years that the 4 of them have been together. A benchmark-setting new complete recording on 3 CDs with the Auryn Quartet and Nobuko Imai.
