By Ivan March, Grammophone (July 2004):

The Philips Duo CD and the PentaTone SA-CD make a fascinating comparison. Both offer the delightful 1975 Beaux Arts trio recording of Shubert’s trout Quintet, with the SA-CD making use of the original (quadraphonic) four-channel tape master to provide convincing added hall ambience for those with a four speaker reproducing set-up….George Pieterson and members of the Grumiaux Quartet deliver an enchanting realisation pf Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet. Here the sound is quite ravishing, wonderfully warm and glowing, yet with the inner string parts remarkably clear. “The Schubert and Mozart Quintets were recorded in 1975 and 1974 in the famed warm acoustics of the Concertgebouw. Both are four-channel originals now released for the first time in multi-channel and represent some of the finest, most natural-sounding chamber music I’ve ever heard via recordings. Instruments are well-placed, appropriate ambient sound recreates the resonant acoustics of the Dutch concert hall. The performances are exemplary in every way.”Dr. Phil Muse, Classik Reviews (February 2004):“PentaTone’s RQR series of hybrid SA-CDs has a winner in two of the best Philips chamber recordings from the 1970s. First, Schubert’s Piano Quintet in A, D.667, the “Trout,” features the Beaux Arts Trio with Samuel Rhodes, viola, and Georg Hortnagel, bass. Then, Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet, K.581 in the same key has the Arthur Grumiaux Quartet with guest artist George Peterson, clarinet. Chamber music doesn’t get any better or more infectious than this pairing of “hits.”By Robert McColley, Fanfare:
“Both [works] receive superb performances…There are many great performances of this cheerful masterpiece [ the “Trout” Quintet] but this is the equal of any I have heard…The performance of the sublime Quintet is even more remarkable: poised, fluent, beautifully integrated, and soulful.”

By Herbert Glass, Fanfare:
“Both quintets enjoy repeats of their first-movement expositions. These masterful performances are fine in stereo, and finer still in SACD mode. Very highly recommended.”
