This is a well-recorded, immaculately conceived performance of top-shelf Mozart. The players are not superstars, but they do work well together, with a sense of common purpose that is sometimes missing from all-star recordings in this kind of repertoire.

I am not going to criticize my peers on this page who point to such all-star recordings as having a higher percentage of goose-bump moments, or inspired risk-taking, or whatever. Spontaneity and virtuoso grace have their rewards, but so does an ensemble that can express itself as one.

I also really appreciate the Bach-Mozart pieces that fill out the CD. These frame the Divertimento well and add some gravity that prepares us nicely for the approach that the trio will take (has taken) in the main piece. Don't hesitate to acquire this.

There is no question in my mind, or in that of many others, that Mozart's Divertimento for String Trio in E Flat Major, Op. 563, is one of his greatest works and indeed one of the greatest chamber works of any composer. For myself, I love it beyond any other chamber music Mozart wrote. There is something ineffably engaging both emotionally and intellectually about this piece. Of course, it is not a divertimento as we generally understand that term. This is not background or wallpaper music. I know that it probably got its name because it is in six movements, like a suite or divertimento, but the impetus behind the music is utterly serious. And string players know this; it is one of the pieces that string players love to play for their own enjoyment. Indeed, the first time I heard it in live performance the players were Itzhak Perlman, violin, Pinchas Zukerman, viola, and Ronald Leonard, then the principal cello of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, a performance that remains imprinted in my memory of great musical experiences. In the many years since then I have never heard a bad performance or recording of the work. There is something about it that brings out the best in musicians.

That said, where does this recording by the Hermitage String Trio fit? Well, it is a perfectly respectable reading, quite mainstream, nothing outré about it. It is a bit on the tame or cautious side. For instance those viola licks that in the right hands can make your jaw drop don't elicit that reaction. Musical, yes; startling (as they can be), no. Yet, the sense of ensemble, of one-mindedness, does obtain to this performance. Clearly the Hermitage group -- formed a mere six years before this recording was made in June 2010 -- think and play as one.
