“The combination of Stephen Hough and wind players from the BPO makes for sparkling performances of these two quintets… in the slow movement of the Mozart Hough and his partners take a lighter view than their rivals, highlighting the tenderness. Hough and the Berliners also bring out the stylistic contrasts between Mozart and the youthful Beethoven, who expressly adopted the layout of the Mozart Quintet.”
- Gramophone

“the playing really is exquisite, with the members of the Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet doing some amazing things to match timbres and phrasing (horn and bassoon particularly).”
- ClassicsToday.com

“This is an excellently performed and decently recorded release to which I can give a hearty recommendation. Lovers of Mozart and Beethoven chamber works will be in their element.”
- Michael Cookson, MusicWeb International

Eminent British pianist Stephen Hough is joined by the renowned Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet for a classic pairing of Mozart's Piano Quintet in E Flat Major and Beethoven's Piano Quintet in E Flat Major, the latter of which was undoubtedly inspired by the earlier work. These pieces are completed by an arrangement of a 18th-century oddity: Mozart's Adagio in C minor and Rondeau in C major, originally written for glass harmonica with flute, oboe, viola, and cello but here performed by piano quartet, making for a charming Classical era assortment from some of the world's top musicians.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
