Founded in Chicago in 1946, the Fine Arts Quartet is one of the most-distinguished ensembles in chamber music today, with a continuous history of performing success, and extensive recording legacy and an astonishing durability. The Quartet, whose members are artists-in-residence at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, is among the elite few to have toured internationally since the end of World War II, passing the milestone of a half-century of uninterrupted existence with remarkably few changes in personnel. This performance of the classic and emotional Mozart String Quintets features the newest member of the Quartet, Yuri Gandelsman, the former principal violist of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.

There is a certain "feel" to live strings that requires a special recording played on a good system to recreate. This recording on my system achieves that live feel. Brilliant.

Recommended. I have listened as SACD in 5.1 and in the car as CD. Fine Acoustic. Front space is nicely spread across R/C/L, with a very restained but very natural rear R/L space,and the resulting ambience hints at the generous size of the recoding area used. Sound 9/10 Polished and enthusiatic performance, without too much reaching down into the music, which could have made it all too serious. This music is for living with and for living from, being recharged by it. Performance 7/10 Reasonable value for money. Overal Value 7/10. But then it did come all the way from France.
