Mozart

String Quintet no. 3 in C, KV.515

Mozart

String Quintet no. 4 in g, KV.516

The middle two Mozart string quintets are without doubt highlights of his oeuvre. When he started writing them, he clearly understood the possibilities the extra viola offers to a string quartet and he made great use of it. These quintets form an enormous contrast between themselves: the third quintet is light and humorous, the fourth is dark and heavy.

It may seem strange, a focus on quintets at a string quartet festival. But it is precisely the perfection of the string quartet – that balanced core of two violins, a viola and a cello – that gave Mozart the basis and inspiration to experiment beyond its boundaries. He added a viola. Ideally, the symbiosis between quartet and violist offers the ultimate chamber music experience.
