Notes and Editorial Reviews

'The playing is all one could wish for. Clarenettist Bohuslav Zahradnik's vivid phrasing and aromatic timbre achieve a blend with the darkly focused strings that might be akin to a splash of cilantro atop goose-liver paté. Add Calliope's excellent engineering, and you have a Mozart Quintet CD that takes its rightful place alongside memorable versions from the Budapest and Danish Quartets. A heavenly bargain, not to be passed up!' - Classics Today 'The playing is all one could wish for.
