Perlemuter joined with members of The Albion Ensemble for this unusual offering. It was the only chamber recording he made with Nimbus. The ensemble was George Caird (oboe), Andrew Marriner (clarinet), Jeremy Ward (bassoon) and Robin Martin (horn). The playing here is relaxed, genial. Phrasing in the Beethoven is unostentatious, and the heart of the Quintet, its slow movement, is especially appealing in its measured generosity. The ensemble is fine in the finale. In the Mozart we have more evidence of a solid ensemble alliance and of leisurely refinement once again. One can certainly enjoy the technical accomplishment and the slightly self-effacing quality of the music-making.
