In the past I felt that the Hagen quartet of Salzburg, Austria, was the #1 chamber music group on this planet. After hearing this group, I found that the Hagen has a terrific competitor.

The Quatuor Mosaïques delivers wonderful, sonorous, balanced, and matched sounds of the great chamber music masters! It is a rich, delicate and satisfying experience to hear these musician perform.
