Mozart: Quintets / Imai, Auryn Quartet
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 this release many ingenious, refined and playful themes, the whole inexhaustible richness of Mozart's ideas are realized even more clearly.
