The string quartet offers countless possibilities of interplay between the different instruments. If you add a fifth person to the mix, in this case the viola player, Nobuko Imai, with the Auryn Quartet, then it not only gives the whole sound a comparatively orchestral quality but also considerably increases the methods at the composer's disposal.

These are just two reasons why Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's combination of 2 violins, 2 violas and a cello have become so well-loved.

Out now is the first SACD of a set of three in TACET's complete edition.

The opulent and tragic K406 in C minor together with the pure, idealistic K515 in C major forms the first standalone SACD, the famous, sorrowful K516 in G minor with the early, exuberant and dramatic K174 the second disc, and the chirruping, mischievous K614 in E flat major with the mature and worldly-wise K593 in D major the third. In as far as these characterisations say anything at all about the music, it is only about the opening of each piece. Each movement is distinct and different. Every quintet tells its own great story.

In TACET Real Surround Sound the many ingenious, refined and playful themes, the whole inexhaustible richness of Mozart's ideas are realised even more clearly.
