Brentano & Mozart

A friend who reviews for Fanfare and IRR showed me his recent cache of assignments. Nestled within Reinecke Symphonies and Sigfrid Karg-Elert piano music, was a July 10, 2007, Aeon France CD of the Brentano String Quartet playing Mozart, the Quartet, K. 464, and Quintet, K. 593, with Hsin-Yun Huang, viola.

The Brentanos gave their first performance of K. 464 at Helicon's 70th Symposium, May 16, 2004, so it was a pleasure to hear how their performance had grown. This CD is pure delight, I listened to it on and off all day.
