Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.

The Mozart Piano Quartet presents two highlights of the romantic chamber music literature as live recordings on this SACD. With the Quartet in E flat major op. 47 by Robert Schumann and the Quartet in G minor op. 25 by Johannes Brahms the musicians impressively demonstrate why it is that they have been able to play their way into the top international ranks within the shortest time. The Andante from the Quartet in C minor op. 60 by Brahms was heard as an encore during this live concert.

“I was enchanted by this beautiful work that is so youthful and fresh as if it were the first." - Clara Schumann (Note from her journal
