Kuijken Piano Quartet
Veronica Kuijken (fortepiano), Sigiswald Kuijken (violin), Sara Kuijken (viola), Michel Boulanger (cello)

Following their recently released recording of three Mozart Piano Concertos in the composer's own versions for piano and string quartet, the renowned Kuijken family now turn to his pair of contrasting piano quartets. Veronica Kuijken plays a fortepiano on this favourite coupling of Mozart's Piano Quartets in G minor and E flat major.

The two piano quartets, composed in 1785 and 1786, are all-encompassing – the appeal of a piano concerto in miniature on the one hand, and the mystery and intimacy of the most heavenly chamber music on the other. Mozart created this genre practically from scratch. Indeed, his treatment of these four instruments as equal partners was unheard of in his day.

Writing in the booklet, pianist Veronica Kuijken comments: "The silence, both empty silence and full silence, I experience in the slow movement of the second piano quartet, is like a balm, while the intense power of expression of both opening movements leaves me speechless."

Cellist Michel Boulanger, who has previously appeared with the Kuijkens on a disc of Schubert's masterful String Quintet (CC72647), now joins the Kuijken Piano Quartet for this fresh and eloquent Mozart recording in place of Wieland Kuijken.
