Mozart's string quintets, along with the E flat trio & the quartets dedicated to Haydn, are among his greatest chamber works. The Talich play with fine ensemble & technical skill. Their sound is never over blended, glossy, or over projected. They never play to the balconey. Their playing is truly an intimate dialogue. That said, they are at times, slightly too reticent in some passages. Over all though, these are excellant performances of wonderful music. These quintets, much like the "Haydn Quartets", emcompass a large range of emotions and moods.The clarinet quintet is also very well performed. This set contains great music that is well performed, well recorded, and at a most reasonable price. Why hesitate?
