Notes and Editorial Reviews
This 6-CD set captures the Amadeus Quartet (with a 40-year career of playing together) in recordings of all of Mozart’s 23 string quartets. Additional Divertimentos are included.

" The Amadeus have nearly always been at their best in Mozart and Haydn, the execution splendidly accomplished yet without any suggestion of overt display, and, while no interpretations could possibly respond to every aspect of these profound works, it is a compliment to all concerned that quite often while listening again and again to these discs I forgot all about questions of performance and recording and thought only of the music. ...sufficient to state the obvious and say that all Mozartians can safely buy this set, assured of countless hours of satisfaction."

-- Gramophone [10/1972]
