Cuarteto Casals continues to explore Mozart’s body of works dedicated to Haydn. Here, one composer takes on the mantle of the other: the younger man, now settled in Vienna and just starting a family, was experiencing an exceptional period of creativity, transfiguring everything he touched with his genius. In its review of the group’s first release of Mozart’s quartets dedicated to Haydn, Gramophone wrote, “Cuarteto Casals shatter a glass ceiling of historic inhibitions and camouflage nothing. Enshrined herein is a rare order of musicianship.”
