Product Description

Arthur Grumiaux's performances of Mozart, whether of the violin concertos, the sonatas, or various chamber pieces with violin, were marked by patrician elegance and an unfailing sense of style. For this 1973 recording of the string quintets, arguably the summit of Mozart's chamber output, Grumiaux surrounded himself with musicians of a similar stripe, and the result remains among the treasures of the catalog. By today's standards, the performances may sound just a bit laid-back and relaxed, but the ensemble is marvelous, and the beauty of tone Grumiaux and company achieved in these readings has rarely been approached on disc since. The analog recording is splendid. --Ted Libbey

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing Music! Very addicting! June 13 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this wonderful set based on the 11 five-star reviews (at the time). If you think about that, you have an amazing piece of music when you have 11+ reviews with all 5 stars!!
I thank you all, and you were not kidding. This is some of the very best music I have ever heard in my entire life. I still live for many of the String Quartets (currently awaiting the Philips set) that I have collected which floor me, but I must say that the music on this set is just as powerful (as many of you have said) and a MUST HAVE if you an addict like me. There is just nothing on god's green earth that compares to Mozart!
Sometimes just the first few notes can emit that Mozart Effect and you are hooked for life!! Again, my gratitude for the fine information you all have provided in your reviews. It is very valuable to know how people feel before you buy! BRAVO!

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Essential Jan. 6 2003
Format:Audio CD
I live in a world where self-professed classical music lovers may very well be familiar with Schubert's great C major string quintet, but then again may not be familiar with the two string quintets by Brahms, or with either of the sole works composed in this form by Bruckner or Beethoven, both of which are masterpieces. Furthermore, while these people might even be familiar with Mozart's ten great string quartets (along with, perhaps, the wonderful B flat divertimento for three strings) there is unfortunately a good chance they're not familiar with Mozart's string quintets -- four of the six of which are undying masterpieces, and which together comprise one of the peaks of the chamber repertory.
Frankly, I'm not sure I'd like to continue to exist in a world unfamiliar with Mozart's string quintets. So, if possible, please help rectify the situation by acquiring this collection immediately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sring Quintets/Grumiaux March 16 2001
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely beautiful chamber music. This ensemble's elegance is desperately missing in more contemporary/recent performances. A must have recording, for such sublime music.
