"It is a huge honour and responsibility to record Mozart’s string quartets, but it feels right to take one of our most cherished concert programmes into the recording studio.
"We have been working on Mozart’s string quartets since our first notes together. Our shared love for Mozart’s music, and particularly our primarius, Arvid Engegård’s passion for Mozart reflected in his choice of repertoire both as a conductor and violinist throughout the last three decades, make recording Mozart’s string quartets a timely project indeed.
"On this CD we present the three final quartets Mozart ever wrote, known as the “Prussian” quartets, because of their dedication to the King of Prussia, Friedrich Wilhelm II. They are intricately constructed and give a prominent role to all voices, but particularly to the cello. If all goes according to plan, this will be the first of several CDs of Mozart’s string quartets recorded by the Engegård Quartet for LAWO Classics."
