"...a freshness and spontaneity that sparkle in everything they play."   The Strad

"Last evening's performance was as focused as a laser and surpassingly expressive. One could enjoy the Mozart Quartet's terrific playing with almost any music, but hearing it doing a masterwork like this (Brahms C Minor) one can only marvel that such beauty is possible."  The Ottawa Citizen

 

Discover with the Mozart Piano Quartet the magic of sounds and colors to be found in the romantic chamber music! Founded in 1997, the ensemble brings together international artists from Germany  in a group that shows "with utter clarity the unanimity of their approach to music-making" Sydney Herald. "They made music with passion and fire, paired with technical brilliance," said the German press. The Quartet has been engaged by the Mahler and the Kurt Weill Festivals, the German Mozart and the Bach Festivals, by the Bauhaus Series, the Gewandhaus, The Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Schleswig-Holstein Festival and the International Beethoven Festival Warsaw, the Melbourne and the International Barossa Music Festivals, the Sydney Opera House, among others.

 

The Mozart Piano Quartet had its first extensive North American tour in April 2002 and by now has appeared in New York (Lincoln Center and Frick Collection), Baltimore, Washington DC, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Jose,  Ottawa and Montreal, Casals Festival San Juan, and elsewhere. The group has recorded Brahms and Mozart for BMG-Arte Nova,  and Dvorák and R. Strauss for MDG. Their Beethoven recording was released in the fall of 2007, the Melanie Bonis recording in January 2008, Saint-Saens won the October 2009 Gramophone Editor's Choice, with a recording of Schumann in the planning. Of their Mozart recording,  Strad Magazine said: "alert, sensitive and exhilarating accounts of Mozart's legacy in the genre. Verve, drive and imagination are evident in plenty." Of their Strauss CD, Fanfare says :"This altogether dazzling disc goes straight to my 2006 Want List."  A group to be watched!" The Advertiser
