Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Many years ago the Leipzig String Quartet created a sensation with Mozart's ten famous string quartets. Now this exceptional ensemble awarded numerous prizes turns to the practically neglected works of the Salzburg master's youth - and with clear results: their inimitable melodic suppleness reveals a budding genius with a boundless imagination and anticipates the wonderful arias and cantilenas of Mozart's great operas.

Mozart composed the five quartets recorded here between the ages of fourteen and seventeen. As his father Leopold wrote home in a letter, the boy composed the first of these works, KV 80, out of boredom while spending the night at an inn in Lodi on their way to Milan.

The Leipzig String Quartet presents these pieces with just the right blend of naturalness and sovereignty - which means that even now we can look forward to the sequel!
