When the influential publisher Hoffmeister canceled Mozart’s series of piano quartets - the composer had luckily completed the second quartet - and it was published by another firm in 1786. Lucky for us - this classic of the chamber genre is one of the great Mozart compositions. The purity of structure - enchanting melody and beautiful interplay between instruments makes it a must-have for all pianists. The first-movement Allegro begins intensely but integrates gracious themes throughout. The Larghetto presents a richly conceived slow movement that features much back-and-forth between piano and strings - and a delicately beautiful ending. The third-movement Rondo (Allegretto) is full of fire and energy with much for the pianist to enjoy. In short - it is an essential and rewarding addition to any pianist’s library. And this Music Minus One edition brings it to you in a beautiful digital stereo recording with a beautifully engraved new score.
