As mentioned by another reviewer here, the Eder quartet recorded most of this series in a highly resonant, cathedral-like interior so as to give the quartet the power of a small string orchestra. But what is particularly effective for me is the separation and balance between instruments; each instrument can be followed individually if so desired, and with Mozart each has interesting work to do. I don't know how this separation is accomplished in engineering terms but the effect is rich and sumptuous. I bought one CD of this series and quickly bought others. The group achieves brilliant, extroverted interpretations, full of brio and rhythmic drive in the allegros and prestos and charm and poise in the andantes. Recorded in the early 90s but a steal at these prices. Highly recommended.
A brief review: at this price these recordings (this disk is part of the complete Mozart string quartets by the Éder quartet) are indeed a steal. One could argue that this or that ensemble performs this or that quartet better, and for that reason I have serveral sets of the 'major' Mozart quartets in my collection. But all that said and done, for the whole set, and especially for the more early quartets, these performances can certainly be recommended. I gladly adhere to the 'verdict' on Classical Net on this CD: "Highly recommended, especially at budget price". http://www.classical.net/music/recs/reviews/n/nxs50544a.php
