Mozart Quintet In C Minor; Quintet In C Major KV 515


The string quartet offers countless possibilities of interplay between the different instruments. If you add a fifth person to the mix, in this case the viola player, Nobuko Imai, with the Auryn Quartet, then it not only gives the whole sound a comparatively orchestral quality but also considerably increases the methods at the composer's disposal. These are just two reasons why Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's combination of 2 violins, 2 violas and a cello have become so well-loved. In TACET Real Surround Sound the many ingenious, refined and playful themes, the whole inexhaustible richness of Mozart's ideas are realised even more clearly. The opulent and tragic KV 406 in C minor together with the pure, idealistic KV 515 in C major forms the first standalone SACD, the famous, sorrowful KV 516 in G minor with the early, exuberant and dramatic KV 174 the second disc, and the chirruping, mischievous KV 614 in E flat major with the mature and worldly-wise KV 593 in D major the third.In as far as these characterisations say anything at all about the music, it is only about the opening of each piece. Each movement is distinct and different. Every quintet tells its own great story. Out now is the first SACD of a set of three in TACET's complete edition.
