MPQ's latest release - of the beautiful Fauré piano quartets - has received an excellent review in CLASSIC: aktuell -

"Gabriel Fauré has frequently been termed “the father of Impressionism.” Why this is so is rendered very apparent on this state-of-the-art CD featuring interpretations of his two Piano Quartets by the superb Mozart Piano Quartet. With great virtuosity, a fine sense of sound, and an intelligent command of the complex overall structure, the four instrumentalists brighten the performance skies with their musical fireworks."

 

Upcoming highlights for the 2018 Opus Klassik Award-winning MPQ include performances of a major new Beethoven-inspired commission for Beethoven 250, an exciting Penderecki Sextet USA tour with special guests, concerts in Amsterdam and Oxford, and the recording of the Fauré piano quintets.
