One of the best recordings of Mozart chamber music ever

– Playing of such exquisite musicality.
– Superlative SACD recorded sound compliment the playing superbly.

This disc brought so much enjoyment I’m listening to it again. What is offered here is the absolute epitome of grace, charm and the sheer joy of making music. This is simply one of the most uplifting, life-affirming collection of performances I have ever heard. Chamber music recordings do not get any better than this.
