Magical Mozart Tour

Magical Mozart Tour

New Zealand String Quartet

Péter Nágy, piano


Selected movements recorded live with Péter Nágy (piano) on the Magical Mozart Tour, 2006.


"This CD celebrates Mozart's 250th year and offers highlights of the Magical Mozart Tour given by the NZSQ and pianist Péter Nágy throughout New Zealand in 2006. You will head movements from each of the set of six quartets that Mozart dedicated to Haydn, known as the "Haydn" Quartets, and from each of Mozart's great Piano Quartets. Recorded live on tour, these movements have been chosen especially to invite the listener into the genius of Mozart in all its guises. Inspired by the new way of writing for quartet that he heard in Haydn's Opus 33 Quartets, and by his weekly visits to his patron van Swieten's vast collection of Bach manuscripts, the mature Mozart is here heard at his most daring, breaking new ground with shocking dissonances, breathtaking virtuosity, masterful counterpoint, comic dialogue, profound introspective moods and infectious playfulness." - Rolf Gjelsten
