Saint-Saens was himself an excellent pianist, so many of his chamber works feature the piano. The Mozart Piano Quartet was founded in 2000 and is now one of the leading piano quartets in the world. “The Mozart Piano Quartet provide these works with enthusiastic advocacy and MDG’s sound is a model of clarity and natural balance….” Gramophone Magazine
“The Mozart Piano Quartet play both quartets with considerable élan, evoking the spirit of their namesake in Saint-Saëns's beautifully balanced, often gossamer textures. Where power is required, though… they respond with assurance. …a splendid disc.”
