Fanfare: Best of Year

The annotator of this release, Harris Goldsmith, writes: "What a stimulating and thought-provoking diversity for Mozarteans! With this release, listeners can welcome a brilliant addition to the legacy of recorded music." On this two-disc set Bridge Records issues five Budapest String Quartet Mozart performances- recordings never before released to the public in any format.

Mr. Goldsmith opines that "at long last, we have the first truly satisfactory and inspired version the celebrated foursome made of the Clarinet Quintet, K. 581, and, to add to the bounty, it gives us a revelatory reading of the Quartet for Piano and Strings, K. 493, as well as characteristically vigorous accounts of two of the Haydn Quartets, K. 421 and K. 464. As a final treat we hear a magnificent Roisman-Kroyt-Schneider interpretation of the sublime Divertimento, K. 563."



“This is a splendidly engrossing set, full of life and engagement, and strongly recommended.” - MusicWeb International
