After the early quartets and the famous 'Dissonance' Quartet, the Cuarteto Casals continues its exploration of the set of works Mozart dedicated to Joseph Haydn. Here one composer took on the mantle of the other: the younger man, who had now settled in Vienna and had just started a family, was going through an exceptional period of creativity, transfiguring everything he touched with his genius. An exhilarating experience for our Catalan musicians, following hard on the heels of their acclaimed Beethoven cycle.

"If you like your Mozart taut and urgent, with no concessions to Mozartian 'charm', you should find these brilliantly executed performances as riveting as I do." Gramophone
