On the newly released Volume 4 of the complete recording, the famous "Dissonance Quartet" (K. 465) is combined with three of the Milanese or rather Italian Quartets (K. 157, K. 159, K. 160) composed about twelve years earlier.
The online magazine Pizzicato raved about the recording: "The listener experiences an enormously contrasted, well-shaped and playful Mozart(...) However, they never rely on effects, everything sounds coherent. The joy of playing and the joy of communication (...) are definitely an asset. (...) A Mozart with character, played to perfection!"
Already released volumes of the complete recording have been enthusiastically reviewed in recent years. "This is what the state of the (Moz) art sounds like", wrote Fono Forum about Volume 2, while the Tagesspiegel, on the occasion of Volume 3, attested to the quartet's "fresh approach to the repertoire classics" through their exploration of the Urtext.
Volume 5 will complete the CD edition of the Armida Quartet this April.
