Erich Höbarth, violin; Andrea Bischof, violin; Anita Mitterer, viola; Christophe Coin, violoncello
Haydn String Quartet in F minor, Op 20 No 5
Mozart String Quartet in G, K387
Borodin String Quartet No 2 in D
Sans pareil at the summit of achievement as a period instrument ensemble, these players have the finest pedigree, having first met in the crucible that was Nikolaus Harnoncourt’s Concentus Musicus, at an explosive time when new minted creativity sprang from deep commitment to original instruments and style. But their reputation is far removed from anything so mundane as relying on textbooks. Their growing discography along with worldwide performances finds only acclaim for their talent to beguile the ear, astonish with their detailed phrasing, rich sound and lyricism, supporting what appears to be a universal opinion that Quatuor Mosaïques is the finest period instrument Quartet in the world today.
