Vera Beths & Lisa Rautenberg, violins; Steven Dann, viola; Anner Bylsma & Kenneth Slowik, violoncelli

SONY Vivarte SK 64308

Onslow: Quintet in C Major, Op. 38, the Bullet (Quintette de la balle); Quintet in E Major, Op. 39; Quintet in B Minor, Op. 40

This is what period-instrument performance should be all about: the bringing to life of forgotten music in vibrant, state-of-the-art readings. The recorded sound is outstanding. Liner notes by Kenneth Slowik are a model of their kind. Wholeheartedly recommended!
