From its first recordings in 1989, the Mosaïques has consistently demonstrated those qualities that made it far and away the finest period string quartet in the world: tone, technique, intonation, and temperament. Each of the Mosaïques' recordings - its wonderful Haydn and Mozart and Schubert and Mendelssohn discs - have been mandatory listening for anyone who loved the repertoire.

They are thought to demonstrate his total mastery of the classical string quartet as developed by Joseph Haydn and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The order of publication. Quatuor Mosaïques Mozart: The String Quartets Dedicated to Haydn - Продолжительность: 1:08:25 My. 5 & 6 - and I raved, nay exulted, about them. Same here. I believe these have become my favorite recordings of these delicious Opus 18 quartets. There is something about the sound of the Quatuor Mosaïques that speaks to me like none other.

Both are highly recommended. Listen free to Quatuor Mosaïques Beethoven: String Quartets , N1 & 4 String Quartet opus 18, n 1 - I. Allegro con Brio, String Quartet opus 18, n 1 - II.

That is certainly not how it appears here in the fine performance by the Quatuor Mosaïques. The Viennese period-instrument ensemble relish both its fiery energy and its whimsical humour. Only the adagio strikes me as disappointing: the accompanying triplets, which pulsate beneath the soaring melodies, trudge too insistently, making the tempo seem too
