Description: Mysliveček’s string quartets are characterized by wonderfully refined slow middle movements. Even more unique are his oboe quintets. For a long time, they were only known owing to Leopold Mozart’s reference to them in a letter to his son Wolfgang, dated October 1777 – Mysliveček wanted Leopold Mozart to offer his quintets and other pieces to the Archbishop of Salzburg. Due to the initiative of the performers featured on this album the missing oboe parts for three of the six quintets been retrieved from private collections across Europe.
