Mozart: The Piano Quartets - Apotheosis, Vol. 2

The Whole Note Reviews the Alexander String Quartet’s Mozart: The Piano Quartets – Apotheosis, Vol. 2 recording with pianist Joyce Yang:

“Mozart was not the first to write quartets for piano and strings, but his two contributions – the Piano Quartet in G Minor K478 and Piano Quartet in E-flat Major K493 from 1785 and 1786 respectively – are the first two great works in the genre. They are given simply beautiful performances here, with sensitive, expressive playing all round. The outstanding Yang plays with crystal-clear articulation and a fine sense of melodic line and phrase; the string playing – as one would expect from this ensemble founded in 1981 – is warm and stylish, with generous but never excessive vibrato. The recorded sound, ambience and balance are all that you could wish for.”

—Terry Robbins, The Whole Note
