Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Amadeo Quintett, an ensemble set up specifically for this release, performs Wolfgang A. Mozart’s quintet in E flat major with amazing lightness and a generous helping of humor. Building on their performance Moritz Eggert, the composer and pianist from Munich, opens a side entrance to Mozart’s genius:

»It is all subordinated to a playful attitude demonstrated so masterly by Mozart himself – a game creating its own rules. Issues of style or polystylism are of least importance to me in this game; music is more than its surface. Only when we encounter the unexpected music becomes truly exciting, as it escapes from previously generated expectations. And the moment we realize that in the end everything turns out to be
Read more completely different from the beginning, that we have traveled through something, is perhaps the loveliest of all.« (Moritz Eggert)
