Walter Trampler (viola) The Budapest String Quartet

Far removed from traditional chamber fare, the two violas are the only thing that these six quintets have in common. They provide the melodious bass so beloved of Mozart, the distinctive stamp of his K515/316 diptych, a precursor of the expressionism of the Romantic era. The Budapest Quartet, at its apogee, provides the ultimate interpretation of these works, expressed with eloquence by Walter Trampler on the second viola. Recorded In New York City, 11-12 Dec 1965 [K406], 21-25 Feb [K614, 174], 14-17 [K515/6] & 18-19 [K593] December 1966. Remastered & edited by Alexandra Evrard
