This new recording, from the Quatuor Cambini-Paris on period instruments, brings together Mozart’s major cycle of string quartets - including the famous 'Spring', 'Hunt' and 'Dissonance'.

The Six Quartets dedicated to Haydn, written between 1782 and 1785, are, in Mozart’s own words, “the fruits of a long and laborious effort”. These works are unprecedented in their ambitious writing, contrapuntal complexity and harmonic audacity. Almost as soon as they were published by Artaria in Vienna in September 1785, they were the subject both of much lively criticism, and many essays on music theory.

The Quatuor Cambini-Paris, founded in 2007, gathers some of the best French performers on period instruments, soloists in prestigious orchestras such as Orchestre des Champs-Elysées, Les Talens Lyriques and Le Cercle de l’Harmonie.

Quatuor Cambini-Paris:
- Julien Chauvin, Karine Crocquenoy [violin]
- Pierre-Éric Nimylowycz [viola]
- Atsushi Sakaï [cello]
