“An incomparable, well-rounded recording full of esprit and enthusiasm.” (Drehpunkt Kultur)
… the Salzburg Mozart Quartet performs this sublime ‘pop music’ with musical freshness and a fine touch, presents a treasure trove of temperament, vitality and stylistic aplomb … demonstrates how exciting popular music can sound, organic and with an absence of false meaning.
In addition, this CD offers more rarities from Mozart’s inexhaustible workshop, namely, the Divertimento in D-Major KV 205 with its appendent March KV 290. The natural horn players, Radovan Vlatkovic and Markus Hauser, fit unobtrusively into the quartet’s sound with beautiful, warm, luminous tones. This creates a longing for warm summer evenings in gardens of serenity or winter fires in pleasant living rooms. The serene, contemplative mood is perfect. The Minuet from Don Giovanni stands as an exquisite encore, skillfully arranged by Johannes Krall. Collectively, noble homage to a timeless ‘Unterhaltungs’ musician named Mozart.
