Overview

Classy young French flutist Emmanuel Pahud delivers an elegant performance of Mozart's Flute Quartets. His distinguished partners here are fiddler Christoph Poppen and violist Hariolf Schlichtig (half of the noted Cherubini Quartet), as well as cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras, a mainstay of Pierre Boulez's Ensemble Intercontemporain. Queyras may be more accustomed to recording utlramodern works, but adapts himself brilliantly to the sweetly dry sound of his colleagues, resulting in Mozart that is like a magnum of champagne. Pahud, who takes the leading role, plays these works with attractive freedom. Speaking of attractiveness, the two French musicians have movie-star-quality handsomeness; what a pity this wasn't released on DVD. Pahud and his pack's interpretations rival the acclaimed versions by James Galway with the Tokyo Quartet, and the Nash Ensemble.
