Notes and Editorial Reviews

Two of Mozart’s finest quintets: one for piano and wind instruments, the other the famous clarinet quintet. Both show Mozart at his most inventive, writing for instruments he particularly loved. The piano and wind quintet showcases the skills of celebrated pianist Israela Margalit alongside a fine line-up of wind-players including clarinettist Stanley Drucker, whose mellow tone delights both in this work and in the clarinet quintet. The richly-harmonised opening of the clarinet quintet is followed by an exquisite slow movement, almost an operatic aria in disguise, before a rousing finale end the collection. The combination of exceptional music and outstanding musicianship makes this an essential collection of Mozart chamber music.
