The quintet k515 is sunnier but no less profound than its angst ridden neighbor, the G minor
quintet k516. This pair is somewhat analogous to the G Minor/C Major symphonies-#s 40 and 41 on the horizon, though stereotyping is dangerous (e.g. the second movement of the Jupiter
is almost equally pain filled). The Lindsays play k515 at least as well as any competitor.
tempi sound apt, and they avoid a potential pitfall by not rushing the third movement Andante. In it, the repeated the violin/viola duet sounds like a sinfonia concertante-at least concertoesque- and requires bravura without excessive speed. The Amadeus Quartet
sped in their second recording but not on their earlier 50s version now on DG Original Masters. I was weaned on the Barylli Quartet reading which is slower than the Lindsays and
Amadeus, so it remains in my brain pan, causing suspicion of third movement speed. The Lindsays finale, however, is exhilarating.
k428 is equally well played. The first movement observes both the "allegro" and "non troppo" instructions. It also contains partially a development theme which recurs in the piano concerto #17 k453. The third movement Menuetto avoids slog, while the Finale is a tour de force.

peers: k515: Grumiaux Ensemble/Philips, Smetana Quartet/Denon, Barylli Qiartet/Westminster Japan, Tokyo Quartet/RCA, Talich Quartet/Calliope, Amadeus Q/DG Original Masters (not the later DG remake)

k428: Smetana Q/Denon, Emerson Q/DG, Amadeus Q/DG, Italiano/Philips

5.0 out of 5 stars Superlative Mozart chamber music July 24, 2014

Peter Cropper and the Lindsay String Quintet join Wilhelm Furtwängler, Bruno Walter, Artur Schnabel, Hans Hotter, and a few others as the greatest performing artists in the era of recorded music. Their Beethoven quartets are famous and their Schubert is just as good. I recently bought some of their Mozart and found the same intensity, mental concentration, intimate dialogue between four individuals, and the feeling that I’m sitting in on a private performance for a few friends. But here is the best part: their Mozart does not sound at all like their Beethoven or their Schubert. There is no attempt to “modernize” or “romanticize” the music. This is late-18th century music, performed with the seriousness it deserves because here are two of Mozart’s finest compositions: the K. 428 E flat major Quartet with its thrilling slow movement and the incomparable K. 515 C major Quintet. Their tempos are a little bit faster than other top-notch recordings of the 1970-2000 era (Chilingirian, Grumiaux), adding to the intensity but never feeling rushed. For the Quintet, they enlisted the outstanding violist, Louise Williams. Kudos also to the contribution of Martin Haskell, the recording engineer from ASV (which, as far as I’m concerned, stands for Amazing Sound and Vitality). I must disagree with various reviewers (of other Lindsay CDs) who have nitpicked the Lindsays’ technique, polish, or beauty of tone in contrast to their indisputable “heart” and knowledge of the music. To me, this is one of those myths like “Schubert could not write a proper sonata movement. Read more ›
