Mozart's sublime invention comes to the fore in these final quartets, the last three written practically within just a few weeks of each other. As expected the Juilliard find all the beauty and momentum which is to be expected from these great works especially in K590 which is perhaps the most perfect string quartet ever written. The CBS recordings have come up a little dry in parts but otherwise the download files are clarity itself. Another rock solid recommendation.
