Mozart’s C major string quintet for two violins, two violas and cello, is the most flamboyant and joyous of the four he wrote.
With Mozart himself being a viola-player, these works are where we can enter into his heart and mind most directly; they are considered by many to be superior even to his string quartets. We are pairing this with one of his most appealing flute quartets, in D major, in which we are joined by virtuoso flautist Jonathan Slade.
