Mozart String Quintet in C, K. 515
Britten String Quartet No. 1 in D, Op. 25
Mozart String Quintet in G minor, K. 516 With David Adams (viola)

Britten’s Quartet reveals extraordinary new colours and quartet textures. It is sandwiched between two of Mozart’s greatest late masterpieces. The extra viola seems to have inspired Mozart to an unprecedented warmth, depth and intimacy expressed with an ease and mastery unusual even for him. The G minor Quintet explores a world of intense inner pain, dissolved only in the last movement; the C major is full of joy, wit and invention.
