Description
Winners of the 2010 ECHO Klassik Award in the chamber music category, the German-Swiss Casalquartett (spelled as such to distinguish it from Spain's Casals Quartet) performs Mozart's Quartet No. 14 in G Major, K. 387 ("Spring") and String Quartet No. 15 in D Minor, K. 421. Their Birth of the String Quartet, Vol. 2 disc received both the Pizzicato and the Diapason Découverte awards.

"A remarkably independent and emotionally compelling presentation, the loving, careful articulation of which is able to reveal some previously unheard colors and details of these frequently performed works. Gorgeous!"—Fono Forum

"Stunningly well-organised and stylish…. One would search far and wide to find more beautiful blended sound!"—The Strad

"The performers clearly play to one another in the manner of those accustomed to doing so for a long time. The rhythms are flexible, and employment of a range of dynamics … is always tasteful."—Fanfare

"On the second disc … the performance of the String Quartet in D minor, K. 421, is repeated, with spoken introductions, collectively designated an Annäherung, or approach, to each movement by author Urs Frauchiger. The introductions are taken from Frauchiger's book Mein Mozart (My Mozart), and they're personal impressions of the music…. A score of the quartet is provided in the booklet…. Recommended for German speakers."—All Music Guide
